Monday 12 March: Litter Innovation Fund, Northern Forest, fur imports, Ofwat review and shock collars

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.
