Severn Trent Water sewage pollution...

Severn Trent Water Ltd has paid £226,000 to the Trent Rivers Trust following a sewage pollution which caused the death of over 2,000 fish.

The pollution was caused by 2 blockages in the Severn Trent Water foul sewer, which led to a discharge of sewage into the Thurcaston Brook, a tributary of the Rothley Brook.

The money will be used by the charity for water quality and restoration projects relating to the Thurcaston / Rothley Brook catchments, as well as other catchment improvements in the area.
