Stop polluting our rivers


THE excellent BBC documentar­y State Of Our Rivers by Paul Whitehouse highlighte­d the struggle we face in stopping water companies from dumping raw sewage in our precious waterways.

It seems to me that profits are all important to these companies, with the environmen­t coming a very poor second. Margaret Thatcher’s utopian ideal of high investment and cleaner rivers following privatisat­ion of the industry in the 1980s has clearly not been achieved.

We can’t allow this to continue for the sake of our children.
