An alleged toxic spill that may have killed several birds in the Orihuela area is being investigated by the Guardia Civil.

A white substance was discovered in an irrigation channel and the Guardia’s environment division, Seprona, is now making inquiries into a company that distributes plant fertiliser products.

A routine inspection of the area saw the Guardia agents come across the white substance, and some dead finches not far from it, and samples of the product have been sent for analysis to see if it was responsible.

The distrubution company is also being investigated for allegedly breaking urban planning laws.
