Dead Animals in the Lea

We have frequently seen dead animals floating in the Lea recently. They are often there for some time before they are removed despite being reported to Canal River Trust, which is very unpleasant for boaters and canal-side residents. 

It is worrying to see river wildlife such as the fish and swan - could this be the result of pollution?
