From a correspondent:
Owl asks “With a yellow weather warning of heavy rain in place for today, what can we expect to be vented into our rivers and onto our beaches?”
Just visit the Safer Seas Service Interactive Map on Safer Seas Service Interactive Map • Surfers Against Sewage (sas.org.uk) and you will find that Budleigh Salterton beach still has a Pollution Alert. Storm sewage has been discharged from a sewer overflow in this location within the past 48 hours. Sidmouth, Exmouth and Seaton discharges remain a secret held by South West Water.
But don’t worry Budleigh Salterton, the new sewage overflow pipe being constructed will enable this practice to continue for the next 100 years. A great boost for the tourist industry.
