A Warwickshire fishery owner has caused a stir after putting up a sign banning Eastern Europeans from his water. 

Eddie Whitehead of Dog Lane Fishery reacted after around £10,000 of carp were stolen from his venue – claiming that migrant workers were taking what they caught for the table. 
The story made the national media with Eddie, who says he has been forced to restock twice after losing nearly £10,000 worth of fish, appearing on BBC Warwickshire. He was asked by police to take the sign down while they launch an investigation, and told that if he failed to comply he would be charged with a race crime. 
Eddie said: “I was staggered. I’ve never been racist in my entire life but I have to remove the signs because I don’t want a criminal record.”
