Up to 3 feet of sea foam swamped an U.K. beach town Thursday to the dismay of drivers. The Mirror reported that, "the oily bubbles were blown ashore after 90mph winds battered the resort of Cleveleys, near Blackpool."
A spokesman from the Environment Agency told the Mirror that "early samples are not showing any trace of detergent so we think it could be the combination of decomposing algal matter churned with the tide and the westerly wind which is causing the foam."
