Oil spill in Beverley Brook

An oil spillage has flowed through Beverley Brook in Richmond Park.  The Royal Parks has said that there are no reports of any impact to wildlife at present, but Thames Water and the Environment Agency are monitoring the situation.

If you see any dead, distressed or oily fish, birds, mammals or invertebrates along the length of the Brook please call the Environment Agency incident report line on 0800 807 060 (all animals) and the RSPCA (birds and mammals) on 0300 1234 999.

This spillage is sad news for the wildlife who depend on Beverley Brook and visitors who have enjoyed its natural beauty. The Friends of Richmond Park will be working with the relevant agencies to understand the extent of the damage and how we can support the clean up operation at Beverley Brook.
