Anglian Water was found not guilty on two counts of failing to provide data to the Environment Agency.

The judge commented that the Environment Agency had acted unreasonably in failing to respond to correspondence from Anglian Water in which it set out its proposed methodology.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said:

“We’re pleased the judge has said our course of action and time taken to respond with data to the Environment Agency was reasonable. These were the two most serious allegations for obstruction.

“On the third count, we have received the judge’s draft sentencing remarks and will now take the opportunity to review the basis of sentence.”
