Cold weather kills hundreds of fish in marina

Cold weather and ice has killed hundreds of fish in a canal marina near Abergavenny.

Environment Agency Wales said hundreds of bream, carp, and roach, were found dead in the marina on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal at Goytre Wharf near Abergavenny.

An agency spokesman said the cause of death was "more than likely" due to the cold weather, ice and lack of oxygen.

Members of the public are advised not to remove or go near the fish.
