Toiletries firm fined for island of foam

Wigan-based toiletries manufacturer Chilwood was fined £6,000 on 23 August after creating an island of foam 100 metres long and 3 metres high on a lake at Newton-le-Willows. Wigan magistrates heard that the incident occurred in July last year after a cleaning solution seeped from the foul sewer to surface water drains. The drains emptied into a brook feeding the lake.
