    Hi All - Just wondering if any of you have just returned from Brittany and seen the seaweed problem. We are off next week and have been aware of the articles Almost 100 places in Brittany have toxic seaweed - Telegraph

    Oh well there will be plenty of good spots and maybe it will be empty:Angry:

    Hi.

    There was a post last week mentioning this and how the gases etc can cause nausia and, in the worst case, possible fatalities, certainly to animals.

    Are they not dealing with this or is it just the sheer size of the problem?

    I see pic of tractor on the beach but it must be an endless task as the tide just brings more in.

    As they report, it looks like another case where humanity has upset the balance of nature.:Sad:
