  • A picturesque small river in the Chilterns has dried up, leaving hundreds of fish and shrimp dead.
  • Conservationists at the Chiltern Chalk Streams Project have called for a drought to be declared to prevent more creatures from suffering the same fate.
  • Conservationists have called for government action to avoid “irreparable damage” to Britain’s surviving chalk streams, and avoid taking any further water from them.
