Angry fishermen have hit out after hundreds of dead fish were discovered at Stanborough Lakes in Welwyn Garden City.

The grizzly scene, including carp as well as smaller fish, was discovered over the weekend.

Steven Rafferty, of Greencroft, Hatfield, has fished the lakes since he was a child and was just one of the many to express his disgust.

He said: “It’s like a nuclear holocaust. There’s decades of stock that has been lost.”
