Dog walkers have been told to look out for palm oil on Brighton’s beaches after a huge hunk of the toxic substance was found by a local artist near the Ovingdean Gap cafe.
Stacey Manser-Knight was helping to tidy up the beach here when she came across the palm oil. She sent a picture to 2minutebeachclean, who tweeted out a warning yesterday.

This morning, Newhaven Coastguard repeated the warning, and asked anyone who spots any in Brighton and Hove to report to the city council’s environmental health team.
It posted on Facebook: “DOG WALKERS BEWARE. We are seeing reports this morning of a substance which may be Palm Oil (or similar) on the beach in the Rottingdean & Saltdean areas. Any sightings should be reported to your local Council Environmental Health Officer.”
