Environment Agency initiate legal proceedings against Crouchland Farm

The ENVIRONMENT AGENCY has initiated legal proceedings against Crouchland Farms Limited, in relation to the pollution of the River Kird in December 2013.

The matter is due to be heard at Worthing Magistrates Court on 27 May 2016.

Crouchland Farm and Crouchland Biogas activities are inextricably linked; Leon Mekitarian is director of both and Angus Cameron was also a director of both, but retired from the farm. Clearly the farm is taking the wrap on this one and we may see Wi...lliam Luttman Johnson in court.

No news yet on the other significant pollution incidents in 2015 and 2016 - it must be hard for the EA to keep up. Thank goodness the EA have enough evidence to take this to court to help protect our rural environment.
