A utility firm which serves Sheffield says the quality of its water is ‘better than at any time since the Industrial Revolution’.

Severn Trent Water says it has reduced serious pollution reports by almost a third against 2013, with the standard of treated water ‘better than ever’.

Simon Cocks, waste water director at the firm, said: “We want our activities to protect and enhance the rivers, lakes and streams across our region, and we’re pleased to say the waters are now in a better condition than at any time since the Industrial Revolution.”
