Disgusted BBC Breakfast viewers 'switch off' over report so foul it 'puts them off their food' | The Sun

BBC Breakfast viewers were left disgusted this morning by an unpleasant report that put some off their food.

Jon Kay met with environmental experts in Langstone Harbour for a special episode discussing sewage being dumped by British water companies.

According to a BBC investigation, three major water corporations in the UK had done this illegally on days when it was not raining.

Scientist Rob Bailey told Jon that he had stopped swimming in the sea after discovering drugs, meds, and pesticides are dumped in the water.

The 53-year-old presenter added: "It's sewage poo that gets the headlines and the attention and makes us all feel queasy.

"But I suppose there are things that we can not throw down the toilet, which would at least improve some of that."

The unsavoury nature of the subject being discussed led to some viewers switching the programme off, complaining that it put them off their breakfast.

One person took to social media, saying: "Whose idea was it to do a full feature on sewage at breakfast time? Not the nicest thing when you’re eating breakfast."

Another wrote: "Discharging raw sewage across our screens. Thank f*** I never switch on the TV in the morning."

Many others watching the morning show hit out at Environment Secretary Therese Coffey for not taking more responsibility for the water pollution crisis.

One watcher criticised: "It's never anything to do with Therese. She takes zero responsibility for the disasters she presides over."

A second agreed: "What seems extraordinary is that according Therese Coffey the Environment Secretary isn’t responsible for the state of the environment."

A third wrote: "Once, you'd struggle to find a minister less in charge of their brief. But, ohhhh noooo, that's all changed now."
