Unusual orange algae bloom and mass fish die off at Kent coast, UK

The Environment Agency has confirmed what caused an orange substance to appear in the sea around Thanet and Whitstable. The substance, which has started to stain the groynes at Eastcliff, was reported to Port Control, after being discovered earlier this week. On Thursday (May 2), dozens of fish washed up on the shore, though this was not stated to be linked to the substance, and the council has recommended keeping dogs on leads and away from going near the water.
