Council Press Release Re Duck Problem

We have  had the following press release from the council regarding the deaths of ducks on the lake: 
Dave Wilkinson, Assistant Director for Trading and Property Services, said:

“We are continuing to liaise with the Animal and Plant Health Agency to establish the cause of death of the ducks at Sandall Park. We have confirmed that this is not a case of bird flu. We would like to reassure the public that there is no risk to them and this is only affecting birds. As a precaution, we would encourage the public visiting Sandall Park to keep dogs on a lead, not to swim in the lake or touch the ducks. If you do accidentally come into contact with the ducks then immediately wash your hands. The situation will continue to be monitored and assessed over the weekend”
