River Oil Pollution !!!

UPDATE: River is clear today, although I understand was still diminishing oil film at 11pm last night.
From what I saw yesterday evening I would say this is a local discharge from somewhere on the west side of the river - from the brae or high street vicinity.

Just Phoned SEPA the environmental protection agency,  River is covered in a film of oil which started to pollute the lower river area about 8pm.

This is disastrous for the wildlife, especially at this time with ducklings and cygnets on the river.

The low water conditions make it even worse for the Fish as well.

I hope SEPA can get onto it right away, weekend or not !
