    Children ‘turning blue’ in outdoor pools as sizzling temperatures melt paint

    Children have reportedly been "turning blue" while cooling down at paddling pools.

    Angry parents complained to Conwy council after legs, trunks and swimming costumes have been dyed a strange hue.

    According to North Wales Live blue paint used at pools in Llandudno , Llanfairfechan and Rhos on Sea is to blame as it's melting in the heat.

    Parents have been posting images of blue-paint stained swimwear and a few memes involving the Smurfs.

    Bryan Mantle was one of the first to raise the issue after he took three children to Llanfairfechan Paddling Pool, which is maintained by Conwy Council and they all left with stained clothes.

    "So if your kids go in expect them to come out covered in blue paint, well done CCBC"
