The Health Protection Agency is looking into the safety of a recent beauty craze, which involves the use of fish to get rid of dead skin on the feet.
The HPA is concerned that diseases could be spread from client to client during the fish pedicures. A Health Protection Agency spokesperson said: "Following a number of enquiries to the HPA from local environmental health officers over the past six months, the agency is currently investigating if there are any potential risks of infection associated with the commercial use of fish spa pedicures in the UK."
