Bectan Sands locals are worried about the pollution that seems to be getting worse along the beach. Every morning there is a foamy scum along the edge of the sea that smells funny. Gradually during the morning it seems to dissolve and disappears into the sea.
The mayor has said that tests are going to be carried out on the foam to find out what it is, and where it has come from. Mr. Quimby has also said that there is no reason for people not to go onto the beach while the tests are carried out.
A local nature lover said that this was a result of global warming. He said;
This is caused by the water being warmer and allowing bacteria to grow quicker. This is due to global warming and is telling us we need to look after the sea.
