The date for when Penzance's iconic open air sea pool will become the UK's first geothermal heated spa has been revealed.

The boss of Geothermal Engineering Ltd, the company which has been drilling holes into the earth below the famous Jubilee Pool to tap into the earth's natural heat, said the tourist attraction will be ready to welcome its first visitors once more by Easter 2019.

Ryan Law, managing director at GEL, told Cornwall Live that the drilling has now been done under Britain's largest sea-water lido.
