Sharks in swimming pool under Christmas tree baffle police called to ‘disturbance’

Police responding to reports of a disturbance were shocked to arrive at a property and find an eight-foot paddling pool with small sharks swimming around in it.

Cops attended the scene in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, and found the fish swimming around a replica Christmas tree plonked in the middle of the pool which was in the property’s front room.

It is as yet unclear whether the sharks were a part of the disturbance report that the police were called for on Friday.

Sussex Police will now try to establish whether the renters tenancy agreement allows for such pets, the Mirror reported.

“In the swimming pool (apart from water) were small sharks swimming around and an artificial Christmas tree in the middle! I kid you not!”
