Abstraction charge

POTATO Marketing Board chairman John Headings family farm company A and E G Heading, of Station Road, Chatteris, Cambs, has admitted it contravened its water abstraction licence.

The company is charged with abstracting more water than its licence allowed it to at Fifties Road, Manea, last summer. The case at March Magistrates Court was adjourned until Mar 5. An NRA East Anglia spokeswoman said that there had been three cases of illegal water abstraction and that further court cases were pending. &#42
