Buglife get stung for 30 Grand

The courts, in their infinite wisdom have decided that West Thurrock marshes can be built over.

"West Thurrock Marshes on the banks of the river Thames in south Essex is home to over 1,300 species of invertebrate, including 36 species in the Red Data Book, and seventeen of the Government’s priority conservation species. Only WindsorGreatPark and the internationally protected Dungeness shingles are known to support more rare and endangered species – and at just over 20 hectares West Thurrock Marshes is a fraction of their size."

Because they lost the case, the have to stump up £30,000 costs.

If I had it I'd give it to them.

Maybe somebody out there does...
