Polluter killed my fish, says TV star
Griff Rhys Jones, the comedian and presenter, has revealed that fish and eels in a stream on his 70-acre estate in a national park have been poisoned.
He said a brook that runs for nearly a mile on land in south-west Wales which he bought some 15 years ago has been “badly polluted” and that he had reported the incident to the Environment Agency.
His home featured in the BBC series Return to Pembrokeshire Farm, which documented his painstaking restoration of a 200-year-old watermill and cottage on the estate.
The television star, 67, shared “distressing” photos documenting the “huge variety of wildlife” that seemed to have been killed by “careless slurry dumping”. The toll including trout and freshwater eels – a protected species that is on the International Union for Conservation of Nature red list.
“This is happening across the United Kingdom,” Mr Rhys Jones added.
