Bournemouth Echo reports on the Badboats campaign

Warnings have been given about the environmental impact of glass fibre boats sinking in Poole Harbour.

At a meeting of BCP Council recently, resident Phil Hanchett called on BCP Council to support a campaign which aims to collect the sunken vessels in the harbour.

Speaking to councillors at the full council meeting in November, he said: "Following a recent study in Chichester Harbour it was found that derelict glass fibre boats do not biodegrade; rather they break into strands that can cause cancer in aquatic organisms and become part of the food chain in the form of microplastics.
