Liberal Member for Braddon Joan Rylah says that the Burnie City Council’s lack of action on the sludge in the Blythe River is simply not good enough.

Speaking to Brian Carlton, Ms Rylah says that answers have still not been provided as to the source of the sludge.

Shorty Halfacre, who posted the original photos of the Blythe River, calls in to tell Brian that the river has been ‘cleaned’, but that the issue still remains.
