THE Carnegie Leisure Centre had to shut this afternoon due to a water shortage.

The venue, on Pilmuir Street in Dunfermline, said that the building was "closed until further notice".

Swimming lessons have had to be cancelled as a result.

A short post from the leisure centre said: "Unfortunately we have no water supply, we will update this post as soon as we are back open."

Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, which operates the facility on behalf of Fife Council, said on their website: "All facilities are closed due to a utility failure."
