River Avon

River Avon – Fladbury and Surrounding Area –

For some time there has been a suspicion that unidentified pollution has been the cause of fish moving away from the river in the local area and may have been responsible for some individuals becoming unwell after contact with the waters from the river.

As a consequence, it may be inadvisable to swim in the river at this time. Those people participating in any activities on the river should be cautious of contact with the water and are advised to wash thoroughly as soon as possible after they exit the water. 

The relevant parties including the Environment Agency, Severn Trent, the local authorities and the Parish Councils will be meeting very soon to try and identify the cause and resolve the situation as a matter of urgency.
