More than 100 fish have died after a pollutant entered a river, the Environment Agency has confirmed.

An investigation is ongoing into what caused the pollution in the River Bollin, near Macclesfield, Cheshire, after foam appeared on the surface.

The agency said the pollutant entered the water at the outfall pipe near to Sutton Close, but investigations were "ongoing to understand the source".

United Utilities said[/size] it was "not related" to its operations in the area.
