Many will recall the frothy sea story that made the Evening Gazette and BBC's North West News two or three weks ago. A friend of mine got some great photographs on the promenade at Cleveleys that I think some of you will be intertested to see. I also have some that he took at Rossall Point during an earlier instance of the frothy phenomenon. If anyone would like me to post those too, just shout.

Is the 'frothy sea' a result of salt water merging with fresh water in such shallow seas?

I recall such froths in the 1980's and some observers describing it as a result of the dirty water in the Irish Sea.

I tend to subscribe to the salt/freshwater theory.

Fantastic photos - almost makes me want to go to Blackpool :D

Wikipedia gives a probable cause.
