PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! People have been left horrified after oil was seen gushing from a pipe and into a brook in Crewe. A video, captured by residents Stella and Tony Swift on Monday (June 20), showed the thick, black substance pouring into the water near Park Drive and Princess Drive in Wistaston. It was later revealed that someone was seen dumping oil from a vehicle into a drain on Princess Drive. It has since been reported to the Environment Agency, which confirmed the incident is being investigated. Stella, who owns Mr & Mrs Garden Maintenance Services with her husband, said: "I was at a customer's house and I had my headphones on but I could hear a gushing of water, like a waterfall. It was really strange because it was a regular customer and I've never heard that before.

I saw where it was spouting out from - the liquid was very black and it absolutely stank. It was a terrible smell. "I took a water sample and I dipped my fingers in the water - it was really oily. We've been back and the water is a bit clearer now but the bottom is just a black sediment." Stella said the brook runs by Joey the Swan Park, a beauty spot in the town where children like to play, and then into the River Weaver, a popular spot for anglers. She said she was upset at the harm it could cause to the animals using the stream. Stella said: "It's outrageous. I can not believe people have the audacity to do it and on purpose as well - going out of their way to do these things and get away with it.

. It makes me want to cry because these poor animals don't deserve it." Asked what she'd say to the person who did this, Stella said: "I'd say they were an absolute disgrace and a disgusting human." Tony added: "There's not a lot of space left, especially now they're building so many houses at the moment. The tiniest things can affect the whole ecosystem. "With us being a gardening company, we try and make everything as environmentally friendly as possible. So to think that there are people actively disregarding the public - it's beyond a joke and it should be severely punished." The Environment Agency confirmed they had been alerted to the incident. United Utilities were also asked to investigate the drain, which was found to be clear at the time of inspection. An Environment Agency spokesperson said: “We are appealing for any information about an incident in Princess Drive, Crew, where a tanker appears to be dumping oil into a drain. “Fortunately, in this instance no wildlife appears to have been harmed, however it is vital that oil is always disposed of properly to protect people, wildlife and the environment. “Anyone with information about this, or any other pollution incident, should contact the Environment Agency 24-hour hotline on 0800 80 70 60.” There are a number of Household Recycling Centres which will accept small quantities of oil from members of the public. Businesses are urged to ensure oil is collected by a registered waster carrier, which can be found on the public register for environmental information at gov.uk.
