WARNING signs to stay away from the water are still in place at Lochore Meadows after a number of fish died.

Fife Council advised visitors to the country park to avoid the loch – and keep their pets away from it – after hygiene concerns were raised on Friday.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) took samples and signs were erected.

The council's community manager, Kevin Sayer, said: "Water hygiene testing is being carried out at Lochore Meadows to try and establish why a number of fish in the loch have died.

"As a precautionary measure, we are currently advising visitors and their pets to avoid contact with the water."
