Between 2010 and 2015 Southern Water illegally dumped sewage into our rivers and sea 6971 times. With human waste flowing into the sea around Brighton regularly, our sewers haven’t improved since Victorian times - they have deteriorated.
Looking at both the private company responsible for our sewage problem and the activists trying to fix it, This Septic Isle explores the UK’s relationship with the sea and how it got so dirty.
