Hi
Just seen this on EDP Website

" Algae warning at Barton Broad
02 September 2005 06:30
People using a picturesque broad were last night urged to avoid the water following an outbreak of poisonous algae. The toxic blue-green algae has been found in Barton Broad, near Stalham, forcing authorities to issue a warning to stay away. "

Best to have more warnings than none.

So what happens to the yachtmen who fall in barton during the racing????

Do they now glow in the dark?

The Blue green stuff has also been seen on the Upper Thurne, Martham Dyke and Hickling.

Don't recall any warnings about these blooms though.

The main thing is be sensible....don't drink the Broads water, wash your hands before eating etc etc.  The things that most people with a bit of common sense do any way.

Hi
There are Broads Information Centres at Potter Heigham Staithe, Ranworth Staithe, Beccles Staithe and Hoveton (Wroxham) Station Road and hopefully they would be able to advise on current situation. Speak to a River Ranger otherwise.

If you are a dog owner they should not be allowed to swim in or drink the river water.

Come to Norfolk and have a great holiday.

I expect it will all go back to normal when the weather changes but it looks like it's going to be another lovely weekend.
