Thousands of fish boost for river

Thousands of fish are being released into a West Midlands river which has suffered a series of recent pollution incidents.

The Environment Agency said heavy storms during the summer had let pollution into the River Tame and killed thousands of fish.

Up to 3,000 chubb were put into the river at Kingsbury, Warwickshire, earlier this week.

Another 16,000 will be added over the next few months.

The Agency said dace, roach and barbel will also be added.

The River Tame flows through the Black Country, Birmingham, Warwickshire and Staffordshire.
