'Serious pollution threat' to River Avon in Stratford





THERE is ‘serious, significant and ongoing pollution in the River Avon’ following an oil-type spill which, it is feared, could endanger wildlife, dogs and even humans.

The spill is flowing into the Avon downriver from Lucy’s Mill and not far from Luddington in an area known as Racecourse Brook, but its source may be in Masons Road in Stratford.
