Nets are at the ready to repair leak in Brighton park pond

The Argus: Work has started to repair the Preston Park rockery pond Work has started to repair the Preston Park rockery pond

Wildlife experts are preparing to scoop hundreds of fish from a rockery pond as part of essential maintenance works.

Brighton’s Preston Park pond is undergoing repairs for the first time in nearly two decades in an attempt to fix a leak.

The six-week project will see workmen carefully remove the fish before draining the pond and patching up any leaks.

Simon Reed, of Edburton Contractors, said: “We can’t be certain how many fish are in there but we know there are carp, perch, coy carp and even goldfish.

“I think people must throw their fish in there when they get too big for their tanks at home.”
