Heartbeaking images show otters and kingfishers living alongside plastic in British rivers 

Kingfishers, otters and swans are being forced to dodge plastic in Britain’s rivers, the first images from a nationwide river survey have shown.

The University of Exeter and Greenpeace are currently testing river water at 13 sites nationwide and analysing plastics found there.

Images taken during sampling show otters swimming alongside plastic bottles, voles eating plastic, and plastic in the nests of swans, moorhens and coots.
