A lily pond at Eaton Park in Norwich has been fenced off while the health of the fish is investigated.
The sign put up by Norwich City Council says ‘The lily pond has been fenced as a precaution while the health of the fish is investigated. No fish are to be moved into or out of the pond unless authorised. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.’
It comes about three weeks after claims were made that dogs had been poisoned in the popular Norwich park.
Those claims were however quashed by police, who urged anyone with evidence of poisoning to come forward.
Stories circulating on social media have reported incidents of poisonings at Eaton Park, but police said no actual incidents had been reported.
However, one dog-walker, who did not wish to be named, said her bull mastiff died after eating poison during a walk in Eaton Park.
