Normal for Suffolk?


Rivers across the country are "chronically polluted" with pesticides believed to pose a threat to bee populations, a report has found.
The River Waveney on the Norfolk/Suffolk border was found to have the highest levels of neonicotinoids in the UK.
The River Wensum in Norwich, and the River Tame in the West Midlands were also named among the most polluted.
According to figures from UK monitoring data by the European Environment Agency, 88% of sites in Britain were contaminated with neonicotinoids.
