A new camera could help target pollution hotspots along the coast of East Anglia
Potential sources of pollution affecting the East Anglian coastline are being targeted by a camera thousands of feet above ground level.
The camera mounted in a small aircraft is being used by Anglian Water to monitor sewage from businesses or farms that might end up in bathing waters.
It can spot pollutants that cannot easily been seen from the ground.
The company hopes evidence from the £350,000 camera will help persuade offenders to fix the problems.
