Foam Storm is Snow Joke for residents of Cleveleys

Strong westerly winds have churned up a foamy storm and is causing havoc or residents of Cleveleys, a popular Lancashire tourist spot near Blackpool.

90mph winds blew foam up to 3 feet deep in places – but the foam is far from fun, as it’s oily and stains cloths and even cars!

IT looks like a carwash gone out of control – and the truth really has got locals in a lather.

The oily bubbles were blown ashore after 90mph winds battered the resort of Cleveleys, near Blackpool.

In places the freak foam was almost 3ft deep, trapping residents in their homes and stranding drivers.

Resident Gorden Stanley said: “The situation with the foam is horrendous, normally it happens once every few years but it has been like this three times this year.

“It is oil based so it is terrible for your car and stains your clothes and windows, people don’t like to go out of the house in it.

Last night the Environment Agency was probing the foam to check for polluting material. A spokesman said: “We have taken samples of the foam as obviously if this is caused by any kind of polluting material, we need to know about it.

“Early samples are not showing any trace of detergent so we think it could be the combination of decomposing algal matter churned with the tide and the westerly wind which is causing the foam.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
