There has been a red diesel spill into the stream running through the village. There is a strong smell the entire length of the stream and a film of diesel covering the water. We have been advised by the Environment Agency to keep all animals clear and they are currently investigating the source of the spill.

This is a very serious matter and it particularly affects livestock and pets. If any residents have any knowledge of how to best clean up the mess, please can they contact any member of the Parish Council.
