Quotes

"Replacing our network of CSOs would cost a billion pounds and could double customers' bills. We all have a role to play in keeping our sewers clear of blockages and cutting the amount of surface water that goes into the sewers and we are actively tackling these issues."
"Pretty much 58p of every litre of fuel you buy goes straight to the government and then they charge VAT on top of that at 20%. We are campaigning with Fair Fuel UK to get a reduction in duty. We will inevitably see more people in Cornwall if the price of fuel is cheaper."
"They stay in certain territories so they very rarely move unless the numbers become so large that the males tend to dissipate. So what we're trying to do is to find out where they are so if necessary we can contact the local council and councillors and say 'look this is an environmental management situation'"
"The very young and the very old can become easily dehydrated, injuries due to alcohol excess, we see an increased number of kids coming in having fallen off climbing frames, fallen off horses, surfing type injuries, so the weather does play a part."
