Wildlife in our local rivers is being poisoned by disgusting raw sewage


Figures released by the Environment Agency revealed Southern Water pumped 486 hours’ worth of raw sewage into the River Itchen in 2021-2022.

Responding to the latest sewage data, Danny Chambers, the Lib Dem MP candidate for Winchester said: "People around here are furious at how badly Southern Water treats the River Itchen. It is outrageous to think wildlife in our local rivers is being poisoned by disgusting raw sewage.

"Last year Southern Water made an operating profit of £138m yet regularly dumps raw sewage into our streams and onto our beaches. The whole thing stinks!”

Mr Chambers also criticised Winchester MP Steve Brine, a Conservative, who voted against changes which would have banned water companies polluting rivers with sewage.
