Along Vicarage Farm Rd. in the bushes there is a ditch into which someone drains sewage/chemicals. Chemicals in the form of a white emulsion flow further in the ditch at Storey's Bar Rd. This is accompanied by an intense stench of chemicals. Dead aquatic flora can be observed and the surface of the water is covered with a brown mass of dead plant remains.
