Talkin Tarn

Visitors to Talkin Tarn Country Park in North Cumbria are now able to use the tarn waters again.

Last month people were advised to stay clear of any water related activity following a bloom of blue-green algae in the tarn.

The Environment Agency has been monitoring the situation and the last two consecutive samples have indicated that the bloom has probably subsided.

A decision has been taken by Carlisle City Council, following advice from the Environment Agency, to allow water related activity to continue again.
