Concerns are raised that infections could be spread at fish pedicure centres
There are concerns that infections could be spread at fish pedicure centres. The Health Protection Agency says fish tank water contains a number of micro-organisms, and infections could be transmitted during the nibbling process, or through the water. Michael Bradley spoke to Andrew Griffith from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health about the concerns; and Christina Wright the manager of one of the pedicure groups, Appyfeet, defended her business. She spoke to Mark Patterson.
