The summer holidays have finally arrived and Verulamium Park is a great place for children to go and play outside in St Albans.

But wait! What's wrong with the lake? We're sure some eagle-eyed kids may have noticed that the water is currently a bit smelly and dirty.

Years of duck poo and leaves have built up in the water and been exposed on the surface.

Watch the 10th episode of NewsHound to find out more about the problem and what you can do to help.

The regular news round-up has been created especially for children, explaining local news items to them in an engaging way for young people.

It hopes to get them excited and informed about this historic district.

Other episodes have focussed on the Queen's Birthday Honours, the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May, and St Albans Sustainability Festival.
