Heat stroke: ‘500 attempt to storm Herne Hill’s Brockwell Lido’

Five hundred would-be bathers shut down Brockwell Lido this afternoon after police said they tried to storm the outdoor pool.

Police confirmed they were called to the lido and gym on Dulwich Road at midday after receiving reports of overcrowding at the complex in Brockwell Park.

Frustration was building as people queued for 3-4 hours in the hope of having a dip.

Security staff had shut the doors and were desperately trying to keep the huge crowd from rushing through, in scenes described as ‘shocking’ by onlookers.

Although officers stayed at the scene for four hours, they did not make any arrests.

The Lido is now closed until further notice.
