Paper manufacturer British Tissues was fined £10,000 at the end of May for killing 28,000 fish in a massive river pollution incident in South Wales in 1987. The company admitted spilling a ton of kymene, a resin used to make paper water-resistant, into the river Llynfi in Bridgend. British Tissues has also paid £225,000 in compensation costs. The plant was prosecuted in 1986 after a bleach spill caused another fish kill.
