4 May 2016

Yorkshire Water has been fined £1.1million for illegally discharging sewage that polluted the River Ouse near York.

Yorkshire Water Services Ltd was sentenced on Friday 29 April at Leeds Crown Court, after previously admitting three environmental offences relating to the operation of its Naburn treatment works in Fulford.

The Environment Agency prosecuted the company after its officers spotted the pollution while carrying out a monitoring survey on the river in August 2013.
