A very kind member of the public, Emily, reported finding a moped in the River Blackwater last Thursday (7th August) afternoon. Luckily Steven and myself could respond straight away and drove over to Aldershot to remove the bike. Emily kindly waited on site to show us the exact location of bike, which we managed to tow out of the river and bring back to the yard. We are now currently waiting for the police to inspect it. Emily noticed the bike after following the oil slick whilst out walking and enjoying the wildlife within the valley. She took the rather great photo of the king fisher that same day further down stream.
If anyone see anything dump in the river please report the item and location to ourselves and we will endeavour to remove it or pass onto the correct authority to process.
