Work is continuing to regulate the water at a Norfolk lake after a sewage leak caused problems for wildlife.
The sewage leak was reported on November 8 near the lake at Little Plumstead after the pipe had become blocked by a build up of fats, oils and grease.
Some of the sewage from the lake escaped into a ditch near the leak.
An Anglian Water spokesperson said: 'We removed the blockage immediately and worked to increase the levels of oxygen in the water to help protect fish and other wildlife in the lake.
'We are still on site and continuing to work with the Environment Agency to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.'
