A spokesman for the lido said: "We are thrilled to be able to offer free swimming this summer for all young people, 18 and under, who live or go to school or college in Brighton and Hove.

"Vouchers will be available to collect at the lido from May 1, we hope that some schools will distribute them too. 

"You can turn up with your voucher or if eligible ask for a voucher when you arrive and you'll be given one."

Free swims cannot be pre booked online.
