- The Lib Dem proposal to take new action against water companies blocked by Conservative MPs
- Otters across England and Wales found to have been poisoned in rivers
Last night, the local MP for Woking voted against a new law which would have forced water companies to report on the number of animals killed by sewage dumps.
283 Tory MPs voted against the plans including Woking's MP, Jonathan Lord, versus 179 opposition MPs including the Lib Dems who voted in favour.
