Watch a swimmer in London's fully transparent Sky Pool

This video shows a swimmer in a transparent swimming pool made entirely from acrylic panels that was recently built between two buildings in London.

Spanning two buildings at the Embassy Gardens development in Battersea, the 25-metre-long transparent pool allows swimmers to see the ground 35 metres below.

Named Sky Pool, the swimmable bridge was designed by architecture studio HAL to give people "a swim like no other".

However, the project next to the Kieran Timberlake-designed US Embassy has caused controversy as the pool and other amenities are not accessible to all residents in the development.
