    Default Another Pollution

    http://www.shropshirestar.com/…/hund...-die-in-os…/

    The whole ecosystem of this river has now been destroyed affecting everything that lives in it not just fish. no doubt whoever is responsible (there is information saying it was from a tanker working with the EA ) will get a slap on the wrist and go on their merry way. Its time these acts received heavy punishments even goal would not be to much.


    Looks like the link doesn't work not unusual for me anyone help?

    The link itself works but I looks like the page has been taken down by the publisher.

    Very strange, I wonder why they would do that?

    Its the river Morda in Shropshire by the way.

    Crow, just about it's just south of Oswestry.

    Thousands of fish die in River Morda pollution - BBC News

    Quite local to me a mate of mine fished it quite often in the past. This isn't the first time it has happened either.

    Pollution of our rivers and countryside as always been seen as a cheap way of disposing of what you don’t want.
    Until the polluter is made to pay for the cleanup it will continue. Put the directors in court and not the workers who are told to cut corners for maximum profit.
    There are too many “accidents” in the water industry.

    Well when we row-back on envo legislation in not to many year time, there won't be any accidents at all, as it will be perfectly legal to turn the rivers into the Victorian sewers they should be. Hell fire we've been living in an aberration for the last 40 years of cleaner rivers. Lets get back to making Britain Great Again!

    Currently there is no supporting evidence to suggest that this is not, as described, being just an accidental release.

    Until and unless there is firm evidence to the contrary then it is very premature to intimate otherwise.

    When in doubt the old adage is well advised: don't jump to conclusions but allow the facts to lead you to them . . . . . .

    Oh another one? does that make a difference to the damage done or the punishment the perpetrator should receive?

    Where chemicals are concerned there should never be an accidental release, they happen because someone in the chain of using these chemicals has done something they shouldn't have or not done something they should have. I worked in the chemical industry for 14 years and at both plants I worked in there was never an accidental release, the reason was simple, strict SOPs that were followed religiously by those working with whatever chemical was involved and believe me there were some very dangerous ones involved.

    The polluter pays save when it is UU it seems! Any fine should reflect the damage caused and be used to restock,replenish and to restore. Sadly it won't
