ACCESS to Harrogate’s famous sulphur water should be restored in the near future.

The council shut off the supply at the Royal Pump Room Museum after tests required by EU law showed it contained chemicals.

In a statement, the council said: “The expectation is that public access will be restored in the near future” adding that it was not “an EU attack on Harrogate’s heritage”.

MP Andrew Jones said the council’s actions were “clearly disproportionate” and called for a rethink.
