The Surfers Against Sewage protest on Kingston Beach

It has not been a good month in our neck of the woods. Southern Water has exceeded itself with the amount of sewage it has been chucking into our seas. In fact, between Christmas and now, they've spent 300 hours putting sewage direct into the sea.
