The Environment Agency is investigating reports that human waste has made its way into a stream in East Grinstead which is causing a bad smell to waft around the area.

Grey sludge and what is thought to be effluent (discharged sewage) has been building up occasionally in the stream, which runs parallel to West Hoathly Road just south of Saint Hill Road, since last autumn.

The sludge then clears again as it flows downstream towards a lake which sits alongside, but is not directly connected to, the River Medway.
