On the blog today we look at Government funding for innovative projects to tackle litter louts, the planting of the first tree of the Northern Forest and a letter from celebrities calling on Government to ban fur imports post-Brexit. We also look at Ofwat's review into last week’s water outages across England and Wales and the Government’s plans to launch a consultation on banning electric shock collars on cats and dogs.
