Unknown Substance Washes Up on Yorkshire Coast Beaches

Dog owners are being warned to take extra care when out with their animals after reports were received of golf ball sized mineral oil deposits at Runswick Bay.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s counter-pollution team has been liaising with Humber Coastguard Operations Centre and Staithes Coastguard Team to verify the reports which have now been confirmed.

Dog owners are being told to be extra vigilant as the deposits are potentially toxic for dogs.

Although the exact nature of the material is not yet known, Counter pollution officer Jayne Ede says they are some sort of mineral deposit or vegetable oil.

Dog walkers have also reported seeing the deposits at Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby, Filey and Sandsend.

Jayne says the deposits come in various shapes and sizes.
