[2006] EWHC 1102 (Admin)

A judge had correctly acquitted contractors of causing or knowingly permitting polluting matter to enter controlled waters contrary to the Water Resources Act 1991 s.85(1) where it had not been established that the contractors had responsibility for the pollution beyond a responsibility to carry out specific measures that they had been instructed to carry out.

DC (Newman J, Stanley Burnton J)
