Agency focuses on farms for fish-killer
ENVIRONMENT Agency officials are focusing on farms and businesses around
Little Bedwyn, Wiltshire, to find pollution which killed more
than three million fish.
Scientists are struggling to identify the pollutant which is thought to have
entered the Kennet and Avon Canal near the village and spread downriver to a
Berkshire trout farm, near Hungerford, killing its stock of more than 150
tonnes on Wednesday.
