Correction re Americans to take over London Fields Lido for last minute practice

Correction and apology, the Lido is not being taken over by the American Olympic team but by the Paralympic team - for a few hours a day, details not yet available - best to check with the Lido for times.

Fancy a dip in the London Fields Lido in July 2012? Suffering from a heatwave, got the children on holiday, just in need of a little restful soak? Not on your lilo! Hackney Council have agreed to allow the American swimming team to use it for last minute training. And it's not just Hackney. Other 50 metre pools will also be taken over for last minute practice. The Brits will be in Edinburgh.

Another good reason to pack your bucket and spade and head out of the city.
