I’m grateful to my Researcher, Bernadette Robertson, for alerting me to this with a shout of: ‘Hey! BBC Wales is on our beach!‘
From BBC Wales as an insert in BBC 24, today around 4:30pm:
But here on the West coast of Scotland, locals and environmental officials say that benefits are already being felt on beaches like this [Ayr South] one because of the work they’re doing with farmers on the River Ayr….Scotland’s environmental regulator spends £900 000 a year on a dedicated team of 12 inspectors and support staff just checking water pollution from farms.
In Wales? No fully-funded team ‘like in Scotland’. Still no investment from the Labour Government in Wales.
Coverage? No sign anywhere on the BBC websites. BBC Reporting Scotland? Hah!
