Rather disturbing to learn that such a place of natural beauty is in fact a toxic artery running through Norfolk and furthermore out to sea.
Data released by the Environment Agency (EA) shows that every English waterway failed to pass chemical pollution tests in 2019, due to improved monitoring techniques which can now more accurately report the presence of previously-unrecorded substances
Even more disturbing is that the vast majority of pollution is coming from the areas surrounding the waterways including farming and pesticides.
I find it almost beyond belief that these waters have been allowed to get this bad.
