Don't Mess with Exe's
A British fly fisherman has successfully sued a UK environmental watchdog agency for being responsible for pollution on the river Exe in Devon. The pollution resulted in a fish kill along a section of river on which angler Ian Cook owned fishing rights.
"Mr Cook said that compensation claims were being compiled by the Anglers' Conservation Association. "The agency should have owned up immediately and prosecuted the contractors. But instead they did nothing," he said."
