Strange objects are floating in Poole Park lake in a bid to rid the water of the scourge of rancid weed.
The barley rafts, kept afloat by a three-inch mat of recycled Nike trainers, are the latest high tech method of fighting back against the smelly weed that contaminated the lake last summer.
Unsightly and smelly tassel weed and decomposing blanket weed covered most of the 40-acre salt-water lake and now a three-pronged attack is underway.
Are Nike trainers more oderous than normal trainers or is this just another case on oneupmanship  Roll eyes and which is more smelly old trainers or rotting weed
