Angling Trust – Taking the government to court today!

The Angling Trust, Fish Legal and WWF-UK are in the High Court today fighting a judicial review of the government’s failure to stop agricultural pollution degrading 44 rivers, lakes and estuaries which are specially protected areas in England.
We believe that the government was required by the EU’s Water Framework Directive to stop this ongoing pollution in these sites by 2015. They haven’t done this and so we’re taking them to court.

We have been working on this case for the past six months and it’s a key part of our Save Our Salmon campaign, but if we win it will benefit all species of fish in our precious rivers and estuaries.
