OIL appears to have been dumped into the river at Louth.
It was spotted flowing along the river at the back of the Co-op supermarket and by the side of Charles Street this morning.
Ken Parkinson who saw it said: “It’s absolutely disgusting. It’s bursting into globules. It has a very strong smell.”
The river bank behind the Co-op is a favourite spot for ducks and it is not known how the oil will affect them.
The Leader is contacting the Environment Agency.
