Braintree: Fishy business in town centre fountain
2:00pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
An antiques dealer who put ten goldfish in a town centre fountain was upset to discover they had been removed by council workers.
Les Mizen, 77, wanted parents and children to be able to enjoy the fish, which he placed in St Michael’s fountain in Braintree High Street.
But he was shocked to discover the fish had been removed from the fountain when he returned on Saturday morning.
Mr Mizen bought the goldfish for £35 from Aquapets in Chelmsford on Thursday afternoon, before getting on a bus to Braintree and dropping them into the fountain.
But the fountain’s new residents had been removed within 24 hours, as Braintree Council removed the fish on Friday.
