Six Tons of Highly Concentrated Sunny D Turns River Yellow

About 8,000 litres of highly concentrated Sunny D leaked in to River Parrett in Bridgwater, Somerset, turning it bright yellow. The accident occured due to a leak in an underground storage container. The liquid inside the container was filled with a ‘sub-standard’ concentrate that would later be taken away and disposed of. The leak and and river were quickly sandbagged to prevent further spilage and teams were able to clean up the spill very quickly. Unfortunatly, all fish in the river were killed due to the acidity of the leaked liquid. If researchers determine any long term devistation the company could be fined heavily.
