ECO CHAMBER PODCAST: Dirty dairy, polluting poultry and muck-spreading mayhem

Listen as the ENDS Report team examines why a cheesemaker was hit with a £1.5m fine, how close Natural England came to strike action, whether a new town spells problems for chalk streams, which green EU laws are on the chopping block, and whether DEFRA has gone soft on farm pollution.

Every fortnight, the ENDS team runs down the biggest green news stories, shines a spotlight on some pretty nasty chemicals, and takes a forensic look at one of the more deep-rooted environmental issues facing us today.

In this 15th episode, the team explores:
  • Why Dairy Crest was hit with a £1.5m pound fine
  • The impact of industrial action at England’s nature regulator
  • How a new town development could put rare chalk streams at risk
  • The EU derived laws set to be axed
  • And DEFRA’s approach to tackling pollution from farms
