Default Fish Killed as Soft Drink Leaks From Factory

Good lord.

Around 8,000 litres of concentrate used to make the drink [Sunny Delight] leaked into a watercourse on Wednesday morning, turning the river bright yellow.

Dozens of fish were found floating on the surface, poisoned by the lurid mixture.

The spill of 'sub-standard' juice was a category one pollution incident, the most serious kind, according to the Environment Agency.

Oh, YUK, Ruby. Thanks for the warning. What dreadful chemistry set created that colour in the river?

There has been a lot of talk in the news media about cleaning up school children's food. At last, they realise what this junk is doing to our kids.
