Chemical leak may have caused today’s giant froth in the River Lea

Today huge amounts of effluent emptied into the River Lead causing a giant froth.

These photos were taken behind the filter beds where the river lea branches off through some sort of weir.

Someone reckoned there was a chemical spill up river and it all got churned up going through the weir. They said it happened before a few years ago and a few days later thousands of dead fish were floating on the river…

Wonder if that explains the dead fish found in Limehouse Basin two years ago.
