A whole load of copper piping has been stolen from Hamilton's Waterworld.

Staff arrived this morning to find 2.5 metres of piping gone from the gas line to the spa pool, and a strong smell of gas.

Swimming facilities manager, Matt Horne, says they evacuated the building immediately, and called the fire service.

He said they were trying to find a gas fitter to replace the missing pipe.
