North West Wales

Investigation launched into Snowdonia pollution

Pollution in Llyn Padarn

An investigation into pollution at a Snowdonia lake has been launched by Natural Resources Wales.

Officers examined areas of Afon Las, near Nant Peris, Gwynedd, following a "disturbance" which had flowed into Llyn Padarn.

The incident was believed to be "soil and silt"-related, a spokesman said.

Earlier this week, a large digger was seen excavating part of the Afon Las riverbank, however, NRW would not confirm the focus of its investigation.
