Who Saved the Mersey?
With salmon now having returned to the River Mersey it is hard to believe that only a couple of decades ago it was virtually lifeless and essentially an open sewer. The Mersey Basin Campaign was set up in order to tackle the appalling state of the Mersey through innovative partnership working and local action. Now the Mersey Basin Campaign has come to the end of its 25 year lifespan and Matthew Sutcliffe takes the opportunity to talk to key people who have worked with the Campaign over the years and explores who killed the Mersey, who helped clean it up and was it worth it?
