Successful river scheme finishes
A 2.5m project which has successfully helped manage Cornwall's rivers for four years has come to an end.

The Cornwall Rivers Project was financed through Objective One and the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Nearly 900 farmers and river managers were offered confidential advice and, in some cases, grant aid.

One of the main aims was to improve the economic potential of Cornwall's freshwater fisheries resource.

Advisors from the Westcountry Rivers Trust visited landholdings to identify opportunities to improve farming practice, protect the environment and make economic savings.

It is estimated that farmers helped during the project were able to save more than 100,000.
