Police move in after Herefordshire river bulldozed and straightened
Witness describes damage to mile-long stretch of Lugg as egregious act of ‘ecological vandalism’
Police and environment agency staff have moved in to stop further damage being done to a protected river, after what one witness described as one of the most egregious acts of ecological vandalism in 25 years.
A mile-long stretch of the River Lugg outside Kingsland, near Leominster in Herefordshire, has been flattened by a bulldozer. Trees have been felled, the river straightened and the river bed damaged.
