An investigation is taking place after an oil spill which has polluted approximately 850 metres of river in Crickhowell.
An estimated 3,500 litres of oil has escaped into the river, and the surrounding area, also affecting nearby gardens.
Officers at Natural Resources Wales say they're making efforts to prevent more oil reaching the river, but the impacts are already evident.
Many people called to report the incident earlier today, which is causing an oily sheen on top of the water and a strong odour.
The source of the pollution has been identified, but the oil has now worked its way downstream, affecting the main River Usk.
We are doing all we can to stop the pollution and to reduce its impact on fish and other wildlife which depend on it, as well as the local community who are being affected.Our officers have already spotted a few dead fish in the river, but we’re expecting to see more as the pollution moves through the system. Our team have put booms in place in the Cwm Beth to soak up as much of the pollution as possible.Our fisheries specialists are also currently conducting a full assessment of the river to help us determine the impact on the wildlife in the river.
