British Environment Agency Pollutes Salmon River

Britain’s Environment Agency, the official watchdog for that country’s environment, allowed the poisoning of trout by a contractor working on a flow-monitoring station on the Exe river. “The private prosecution was brought by Ian Cook, who owns a mile of salmon fishing rights on the Exe, near Exeter. The agency and May Gurney both admitted causing cement waste to poison fish.” Richard Savill in the U.K. Telegraph.
