Bill Cash welcomes immediate intervention over cyanide fish-deaths

Press release 15/10/09

In response to the River Trent cyanide incident, Bill Cash MP said: “I welcome the fact that the Environment Agency is carrying out thorough investigations and that they will seek to prosecute those responsible for polluting the River Trent with cyanide, killing thousands of fish.
 
“I am appalled that the survey of a stretch of the River Trent at Stone, following last week’s pollution incident, found almost no evidence of living fish.”
 
“I also await the outcome of a thorough laboratory analysis and the overall view determining the level of impact on the fish in our local river.”
