Poison from an unknown source has killed thousands of fish in a German lake. Several hundred square metres of the surface of Lake Baldeney, near the western German city of Essen, were covered with dead fish at different times on Friday, a police spokesman said. The toxin had entered the lake via one of its tributaries, though how it had got into the stream was unclear. The tributary flows through an industrial area in an underground canal before reaching the lake, which is a popular destination for daytrippers. An investigation is underway.
