A FISHING pool in Redditch has been drained and had its fish stolen.

Between 1am and 6am Sunday morning Lodge Pool was drained and hundreds of fish, some worth up to £200, stolen.

It is thought someone blocked the natural water supply to the pool off with bricks and then opened the weir on the other side allowing massive amounts of water to rush out.

They put a net across and collected the fish.

A number of swans have had to be removed for their own safety. Any birds left will be sifting through debris to eat.
