They should act

Owing to the diagnosed cyanobacteria in Brooklands Park Lake now deemed as potentially dangerous, why have Worthing Borough Council not acted immediately to safeguard the wildfowl and fish that have died in their dozens?

They are responsible for the upkeep and are supposed to drain the lake every ten years to remove the silt that causes diseases such as this.

I personally have never known this to happen in the 14 years I have lived here. I regularly walk around the lake and am disgusted with the state of the rubbish and general neglect of the water.

Year after year we witness Wadars collecting those needless deaths.

Will the council only act as a last resort when a person or animal falls in?
