Worry and frustration over dead crustaceans washing up on Teesside’s coastline has sparked protests and calls for action since late last year - with concern that livelihoods are being devastated.

No single consistent causative factor was identified.
Work is continuing on the £107m South Bank Quay to offer a link to the River Tees for manufacturers at Teesworks.
Teesworks bosses say no dredging has taken place fo the project yet, but activity is due to take place later this year - with the channel deepened and dredged to a depth between 11m and 15m.
