A goldfish which survived being flushed down the toilet is enjoying a new lease of life after being rescued from a sewage plant.<br />
Worker Jake Huey noticed the fish flailing on a mesh filtering screen he was cleaning at the Scottish Water site near East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire. He picked it up and rushed to the treatment building, where he put it in water in an emergency tank.<br />
The fish, nicknamed Pooh, is now being looked after at the Philipshill Waste Water Treatment Works until a new home can be found for it.<br />
Mr Huey said: ''Obviously someone thought their pet was on its last legs and flushed it down the toilet, which obviously we wouldn't advise.<br />
''The fish has rallied as it made its way through the waste water network underneath the streets of East Kilbride and popped up in our screens totally revived.<br />
''This is one lucky little fish. We just need to find a good home for him now.''<br />
Scottish Water urged customers to flush only human waste and toilet paper down the loo.<br />
It said that items such as nappies and sanitary products should all be bagged and binned with household rubbish.<br />
