Salcombe in Devon has been a port for centuries, with a history of maritime trade and smuggling. Now the fishing industry in Salcombe is concerned with seafood and the town has grown in popularity as a tourist resort primarily because of its sandy beaches and the fact that as it’s a vibrant, thriving community, there is a lot to do there. Unfortunately there was a sewage leak at Salcombe in 2012 and a few people were ill because of this. South West Water was fined for this incident and could have been liable for damages if people who had become ill had filed personal injury compensation claims against them. If there were injury solicitors in Salcombe, they may have had a lot of business from such an incident.
