Duration: 06:43

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.
