A Blue Lagoon at a disused quarry in the Peak District has been dyed black in an attempt to try and deter swimmers.

The local council took the step after finding people were unable to resist the pool's turquoise waters - despite the fact that it was almost equivalent to swimming in bleach and it contained an abandoned car.

It looks sort of like one of those sewage lagoons. Depending on the conditions it can look like a regular pond.
I seen the images and it doesn't look swim worthy to me at all. The color is so florescent that it looks caustic.

After last years news reports it doesn't surprise me.

This body of water hit the news last year as a bathing spot, people were actually swimming and playing in it and despite the warning signs, they just ignored them all and picnicked by the waters edge.

I can never understand why people are so dumb, hopefully it sterilized them so they can't re-produce more stupid people.
