Sirhowy salmon project given £72,000

A project which has helped repopulate the river Sirhowy with salmon has been awarded £72,000 to expand their work.

Natural Resources Wales and Welsh Water made the award with the aim of bringing more wildlife back to south Wales rivers.

Salmon only began breeding last in the Sirhowy river near Caerphilly last year after a gap of 100 years.

Paul Heaney reports.
