A waterway in Lynn that residents are worried is being polluted is being monitored by the Environment Agency (EA).

The Middleton Stop Drain at The Chase is being looked at 24/7 and this means hopefully concerned residents will be able to find out the cause of the deterioration of the water way over the years.

After being advised by conservationist and television presenter Chris Packham in undertaking their own tests of that water, the residents are still concerned having had no answers or action about the issue.

A spokesperson told the Lynn News: "We believe we have correctly identified one of the sources responsible for sediment entering the watercourse and are working with them to ensure changes are implemented and are effective.

"We are monitoring these changes closely with a 24/7 monitoring device."

As the investigation is live and ongoing the EA are unable to comment further on this source.

Lesley Bambridge, West Norfolk mayor said: "I am very pleased to hear and I think it's good news it is being investigated as residents have been concerned for some time."

Celebrations were held at The Chase for the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations with a marquee and fun activities on the green.

Speculation continues amongst the residents as the potential source of pollution.
