Residents have spread animal faeces around a beauty spot in Derbyshire to put off tourists.



Farmers have poured heaps of animal excrement to stop tourist taking a dip in the toxic former lime quarry, known as the 'Blue Lagoon'.

The water has previously been dyed black in an attempt to put people off from jumping in while visitors have previously been seen setting up barbecues and leaving their rubbish behind.

Derbyshire Live reporter Gareth Butterfield said: ''The foul stench of slurry hits you as soon as you reach the first gate.

''Even on a calm, drizzly morning, the smell is readily wafting down to the cycle path below and, by the time you reach the gap in the fence around the edge of the quarry, you're getting quite a lung-full.''
