Swimmers plunged into dark after council covers swimming pool windows 'to protect Muslim women's modesty'
A council has sparked anger after officials blacked out windows on a glass-panelled swimming pool to protect the modesty of Muslim women.
Darlaston Leisure Centre in the West Midlands' town of Walsall, was hailed for its 'ultra-modern' design when it opened ten years ago.
But now council staff have covered 250 windows with dark-tinted film following complaints from Muslim swimmers.
But other users say the move has plunged the pool into almost permanent darkness and branded it 'political correctness gone stark-raving mad'.
