Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the attached photograph of a fish ladder recently
built (3#) in Exeter near Trews Weir. Obviously, the designers of these ‘fish ladders’ have never seen salmon and trout jumping out of
the water to scale waterfalls.

Fish are prevented from jumping out of the water because the
Devon County Council and Environmental goons have fully enclosed the ‘fish ladders’ with grills.

I would envisage these fish ladders have cost in the region
of £300k. Money well spent?

In short, these fish ladders are boondoggles.

Please add this to my long list of complaints.

Yours etc
