Thousands of fish rot in a drained lake. Local farmers used the water to irrigate 200 nearby agricultural fields during a heatwave in September.

Around two tons of pike and carp were left to rot and still remain at the site in France more than a month later. Local fishermen say it will take several years for the population of fish to regrow.
