Juvenile Brown Trout have been found at Clayton Vale following a quarter of a million pound project which began five years ago.

The increased presence of fish is seen as particularly encouraging as the Environment Agency and Manchester City Council are also installing baffles in the rivers to further help fish move up and down the river.
