More Of The White Substance On A Scilly Beach

Another, much smaller, lump of the fatty white substance believed (but not confirmed) to be rancid palm oil has been washed up on Porthloo beach, St Mary’s. The Council say that Palm oil is not harmful to humans, but it does pose a known threat when ingested by dogs. As this substance has not been scientifically analysed we advise people not to touch it, but instead report any further findings so that the lumps may be removed from the site.
