Storm tide surge spares Yare

Pike anglers in Norfolk are breathing a sigh of relief today when it emerged the River Yare had been spared a repeat of last October's salt surges, which killed pike and other coarse fish in the river and its broads.

The EA, which monitors salinity in the river, said the salt water had not travelled far above Cantley and the northerly gales had not caused the salt water to hold up in the river between tides.
