It's a mile [edit: 1.5km stated in the article. I must have misheard the news this morning] of bank, though - not some effort to manage a bottleneck that floods.

Are they under the impression that it's ok because a) it's "hlandscaping" (these could be incomers with pretensions and a mile long river fronted "hgarden"), or b) they think the Law doesn't apply to them because they don't claim subsidies?

On local news and main news someone has been ripping out trees and bushes along the bank of the river Lugg. Over a mile stretch.
Not even a blade of grass 20ft back from the water. It looked like the river flowed well in some' before footage'.
Why do it?
Hopefully it wasn't a farmer?
The enviromentalists/ agency were going mad and want the government to prosecute.
That will fuel Packham!

It's on the BBC main news front page!
