The Environment Agency is investigating a pollution incident that occurred over the bank holiday weekend in Teville Stream, located in Lancing. The incident resulted in a large number of fish and eels being killed. The agency is asking for information from the local community and businesses to determine the cause of the pollution.
The agency is also asking if anyone in the local area is aware of any spills of chemicals or detergents that could have contributed to the incident. Yesterday, the agency revisited Brooklands Lake in Lancing, which was affected by the pollution incident.
The Environment Agency is working diligently to investigate this incident and mitigate any harm to the local environment. The agency is committed to protecting the health and wellbeing of the community and wildlife in the area. If anyone has any information about the incident, they are urged to come forward and speak with the agency.
