Dozens of dead fish and birds found in Wivenhoe, Essex, waterway.
Caroline Tilley, Maldon Standard
Furious residents say the ponds and lakes off Rectory Hill are being polluted, with the animals left with devastating injuries. The issue has seen a bright orange gunge appear in the water, which runs into the River Colne.
Chris Coase, of Rectory Hill, said his lake has been affected since last March. He said: “It looks like tomato soup. The colour comes from the amount of iron in the water. But it is what else is in there which is worrying”

MarkG's 'Fishing Magic' - Boyhood Memories of Deal
Many years ago I moved to Deal, a small seaside town on the east coast of Kent. It has one of the best fishing piers in the land with some features specifically designed with angling in mind.

Floater Fishing: The 12 ft Paternoster.
The heaviest carp I have caught to date went 27lb 6oz and was taken with enormous satisfaction on the simplest rig. We all will have seen various versions of what is shown and described here but, as far as Iâ€™m aware, itâ€™s never been popularized pictorially or in print. Certainly, I was very pleased with what I saw as my originality at the time.
