INTRUDERS have been caught on camera after breaking into the abandoned Oasis Leisure Centre.

It is the latest of a series of break-ins and incursions at the site since it closed in October last year.

Urban explorers have been posting videos on social media channels, including TikTok and YouTube.

Officers have since stepped up patrols in the area.

Three teenagers, a 13-year-old and two 12-year-olds, were caught by officers on June 20, and will be interviewed next week.

Police are seeking the public’s help to identify four others who were captured on security cameras on Friday, June 11 and Saturday, June 12.

PC Sarah Cooper from the Swindon Neighbourhood Team said: “There have been a number of break-ins at the Oasis since it closed last November and as a result, we have increased patrols in the area.

"We know that the building is being made more secure and our message is clear – stay away from the site.

"The building is unsafe, and we’ll take action against anyone found to be causing damage to it or entering it.”

Landlord SevenCapital is adding extra security measures and will be shuttering entrances to the North Star sites.

A group of people, including children, gathered outside the facility on Saturday afternoon in a bid to save the Oasis.

Protesters were “sad and angry” to see the closed building “left to rot”.

The protest was organised by the Save Oasis Swindon campaign group and Acorn Swindon.

Operator GLL surrendered its lease after claiming it was no longer viable in its current condition.

SevenCapital and Swindon Borough Council are exploring options over its long-term future.

Plans have been put forward by SevenCapital to replace the dome and build a new leisure centre on the site.

There is an application to have the 1970s building listed historical asset by Historic England, which the heritage organisation is considering.
