I am delighted that in 2016 23 new Marine Conservation Zones were announced, bringing the number in English waters to 50. They cover an area roughly equivalent to the whole of Wales, in addition to 248 other marine protected areas that exist in the UK.
It is very disappointing that certain heads have chosen to write to parents again apparently in order to blame MPs for funding pressures rather than work constructively with us to achieve further progress.
I was out at Cissbury Ring to support the National Farmers Union’s #TaketheLead campaign to make sure dog walkers keep control of their pets around livestock. Vast majority do but 589 animals killed in Sussex alone in last few years means too many irresponsible ones don't.
