Swimming pool's dress code for non-Muslims is scrapped
by Neil Millard
A London council has backtracked on rules forcing swimmers to cover up at a public pool to avoid offending Muslims.
Croydon council has removed the guidelines from its website after being criticised for barring non-Muslims if they refused to comply with the dress code.
They were put in place for weekend swimming sessions for Muslims at Thornton Heath Leisure Centre despite a general ban on wearing T-shirts in the pool.
