Something in the water

Chemicals from a detergent factory in Greater Manchester are believed to have contaminated the River Irwell & River Irk, which runs through the Irkside nature reserve. A thick wall of foam has built up on the river, killing fish and wildfowl. A spokesman from the company say the contaminant could be bleach or washing up liquid although they denied the spill had come directly from their premises. The Environment Agency are on site and expect the polluted water to wash away naturally.
