Environment Agency experts are today out at Caldecote Lake carrying out tests on the water, which connects to Caldecote brook.

Bodies of fish can be seen all round the edge of the lake and it is believed the deaths could have been caused by some sort of pollutant in the lake.

A spokesman for the Parks Trust said this morning: "The Parks Trust were informed about this yesterday and the matter has been flagged to the Environment Agency who will be investigating today."
