‘Really important viewing’: ENDS’ film SEVERN leads TV evening news bulletin

The launch of ENDS’ documentary SEVERN: The poisoning of Britain’s Amazon has received a positive reception, with ITV covering the film as its lead story on its evening news bulletin on Friday and those watching it sharing their feedback on social media.

In the new film, which launched on Tuesday 27 September, experts and people who live by and work with the river Severn give their testimonies as to how the river has been allowed to deteriorate and the dire consequences for people and wildlife.

The film includes fresh claims from Environment Agency whistleblowers, who say that they are being prevented from doing their jobs and from tackling water pollution.

The documentary led ITV West Country’s evening news bulletin on Friday 30 September, while ENDS Report’s deputy editor Rachel Salvidge appeared on BBC Radio Gloucestershire and BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester last week to discuss the findings of ENDS’ investigation.
