1,000+ dead #fish found in a river in #EastAnglia, #UK
The Environment Agency has admitted it is too busy to dispose of more than 1,000 dead fish that are rotting in an East Anglian river.
Residents have flagged up the problem and warned people to keep their dogs and children away from the River Hundred by Kessingland Sluice, near Lowestoft.
The fish were first spotted on Sunday, July 28, by Sue Faith, 59, a carer from Kessingland who walks dogs in the area and was concerned about a potential health hazard.
Mrs Faith said: “It’s smelling and it’s horrible. I want to warn people against going there. Keep the dogs and children away.
“The day before we had the dogs in there swimming and the next day the fish were floating on the water. I was very worried and scared.
“The Environment Agency said their policy is the dead fish will sink to the bottom and that’s the end of it.”
