VIDEO: Oil dumped in Louth river

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.
