Public warned to avoid Kent’s poisoned water

THE public have been warned to stay clear of a four-mile stretch of the River Len in Kent, where an estimated 10,000 fish are believed to have been killed in a pollution incident.

Environment Agency investigators have been interviewing a farmer in connection with the release of pesticides into the river.

A report yesterday said 5,000 fish had been killed in the moat and Great Water of Leeds Castle, into which the river flows.
