The Environment Agency has confirmed that initial tests have detected Blue-Green Algae in Brooklands Lakes and that they have sent further samples of the water for testing.

The algae growth is naturally-occurring and is potentially harmful to humans and toxic to animals. The Environment Agency has confirmed that there is no action that the Council can take to remove Blue-Green Algae from the Lakes or prevent it growing.

The Lakes will remain closed until the results of the further analysis have been received.
