Regarding the new cameras at Dovercourt Swimming Pool in last week’s Standard; if the sun gets in my eyes I would either change my position or draw the curtain.

Pretty much as anyone else in fact.

The pool is over 30 years old, so glare cannot be a new problem facing lifeguards and swimmers.

So what’s the solution? Certainly not wasting £50,000 of tax payers hard-earned cash.

Other pools must have similar problems.

Surely a blind/curtain/less reflective glass would be more cost effective as well as less intrusive.

I assume the lifeguards have re-appraised their duty options to cover the sunny period of the day. If need be then one lane has to be closed.
