Algae returns to Cumbrian beauty spot

Visitors to a Cumbrian beauty spot have been warned to stay out of the water after a bloom of blue-green algae.
Have your say
is there not some sort of fish or snail that can be bred and put in to feed on it
it seems pretty strange that we never seem to hear of this in any other of cumbria's many lakes & tarns , do we just not hear about it or does something happen at talking tarn that does'nt happen anywhere else ? no conspiracy theory here , i,m only asking.
I believe one of the main cause of such blooms is an excess of nutrients in the water; most likely in this case caused by run-off from the surrounding farm land (either animal waste or fertiliser). Maybe something could be done to reduce these possible causes?
