The River Check is an internationally famend chalk stream. Southern Water has put in gear to pump waste straight from underground sewers into the river. It mentioned the method would contain “transferring screened, filtered and settled, extremely dilute wastewater” to the watercourse.

The Crown actor James Murray has branded the plans to pour diluted sewage into the River Check as “sacrilegious.”
