INVESTIGATIONS into what caused hundreds of seabirds to wash up on the Dorset coast have returned no results.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), who led the search into finding the source of the pollution, said their technology has not detected anything.

Fred Caygill, of the MCA, said: "We have not received any specific reports of pollution within the English Channel area.

"We have utilised satellite technology and sent one of our counter pollution and surveillance aircraft to patrol the sea areas between Dover and the Isles of Scilly, and no pollution has been detected."

Can it be guaranteed that these contributions will not be wasted on hiring expensive lawyers for court cases which may be nothing to do with birds?

Or used to feed dogs instead of having them put down.
