Reports of a large amount of blood on the New Brighton Pier in Christchurch sent police racing to the scene on Friday morning.

A scene guard and cordons were immediately put in place after the blood was reported about 6.15am to establish what had happened.

However, police found nothing more than fish blood.

"So, no crime against a person …. just against a fish," a police spokeswoman said.
