Families are flocking to have fun at the paddling pool once again.

The popular children’s facility in Morpeth’s Carlisle Park opened for a new season on Saturday, just in time for the school half-term holiday.

And dozens of youngsters, with parents and guardians in tow, have already taken the chance to make a splash.

The pool has been re-painted for the summer and the island has been resurfaced.
