A celebrity poet has taken to Twitter to post a short poem about the sewage bill.

Pam Ayres MBE who lives near Cirencester penned the poem in the early hours of this morning, just days after Conservative MPs voted against an amendment to the Environment Bill meaning that raw sewage can still be dumped into waterways.

The celebrity poet then added a second part to the poem later in the morning for good measure.

The government describes the environment bill as a ‘landmark’ but the recent furore about it comes as Boris Johnson today also demonstrated worry over the United Nations Climate Change Conference which begins on Sunday.
