Drone footage shows sewage pumping into sea in Hampshire conservation area – video


Aerial footage shows untreated sewage being pumped into Langstone Harbour in Hampshire from a nearby treatment plant. The sewage reportedly poured out for more than two days. ‘I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,’ said photographer Chris Pearsal, who shot the footage. ‘It’s happening right along our coastline, and it quite simply needs to stop.’ 

There were 403,171 spills of sewage into England’s rivers and seas in 2020, according to the Environment Agency, adding up to over 3.1m hours of spillages. Last week, MPs voted down an amendment to the environment bill that would have placed a legal duty on water companies not to pump waste into rivers.
