A swimming pool in Aberdeenshire at the centre of a safety investigation has been allowed to reopen to the public.
Stonehaven Open Air Pool was shut on June 28 to allow the council and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to carry out investigations after an 11-year-old boy was found unconscious at the bottom of the pool.
The local authority has now completed its initial investigation into the incident and has carried out a review of procedures while the youngster involved, who was part of a school trip from Aberdeen, has now returned home from hospital.
More lifeguards will now patrol the open air facility which reopened on Thursday, but only a hardy few braved the weather to make use of the pool.
The council has said it believes proper procedures were followed.
Health and Safety Executive officials are continuing their investigations.
