A leak of processed waste into a watercourse from a nearby university in Shropshire has been stopped.

Harper Adams University, at Newport, said it was investigating the cause of a leak in a storage tank after it was discovered on Wednesday.

Environment Agency officers were still oxygenating the water at the confluence of the Rivers Strine and Tern where ammonia levels were high.

Severn Trent Water said public water supplies had not been affected.

There had not been any reports of environmental damage or fish deaths but the situation was being monitored closely, said Severn Trent Water.
