Anglian Water faces court over Norfolk Broads sewage

Anglian Water is facing court proceedings accused of letting sewage enter the Norfolk Broads.

The Environment Agency said the firm caused "poisonous, noxious or polluting matter" to enter Ormesby Little Broad without authorisation via a permit.

It said the incident, which happened on 7 February 2012 at Main Road, Filby, Great Yarmouth, breached environment regulations.

The company has been summoned to Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court on 8 March.
