Mother angry about poolside changing rule

A North Canterbury mother who received a warning not to dress her toddler beside a swimming pool believes it is political correctness gone mad.

Amanda Crozier was dressing her 16-month-old at the Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre when she was issued with an anti-nudity notice. She says she changed the child's clothes beside the pool so that she could keep an eye on her other children.

Ms Crozier says a lifeguard issued the notice which stated there was to be no poolside changing of children of any age. She says children should be allowed to be children.
