Malaga city hall is facing criticism after dozens of dead fish appeared in one of its man-made neighbourhood lakes.

The incident caused alarm among neighbours when the dead fish emerged in La Barrera in Teatinos on 9 November. Socialist councillor Begoña Medina brought up the incident at Monday's town hall meeting this week where it was revealed some 1,800 kilos of dead carp were removed from the lake.

Analysis of the water has identified that the fish died from the high level of salinity of the water.
