IMPORTANT

I have just had a call from my bailiff on the stretch of river madras lease, ALL the fish are dead, he has only walked the first 200 yrds and every fish is dead

If you walk your dogs along the River Penk please do not let them go in the water whatever it is that is in there kills quickly and it will be spreading into the Sow and Trent after the confluences of each river.

If you live near any of the rivers can you please check and see if you can see any dead fish, if you do please report it to the environment agency asap, summer is here, the kids are on holiday and some of them may go swimming in the rivers......this needs to be dealt with and quickly, it is an ecological disaster for the rivers!
