So…how about visiting a ‘pink river’ for a change!
Of course, it is unreal but this featured image has not been altered.
According to the grapevine, few pranksters in Canterbury, Kent, tipped printer ink into a river, which eventually made it turn pink
Not only, just the pink printer ink, they also hurled ‘car tyres’ into the already polluted water, making it looked even more unpleasant.
Some of the locals in the area were stunned to see the river change its colour – from transparent to glistening bright pink – right in front of them.
“I and my girlfriend were taking our usual route when suddenly the water started changing from normal water colour to bright pink. When I first saw it, I could not believe my eyes. I thought I was dreaming. It was so strange,” said Toby Isaac, 18, a local college student.
It took the officials of an environment agency four long hours to clean the river who later also started an investigating the strange incident.
“We took samples and sent to the lab for analysis,” said the agency spokesperson.
“The substance was sitting on the water but was not mixing with it. We believe the material to be magenta copier toner but are still awaiting the lab results.”
The agency was hopeful that there would be no adverse effects on the ecology.
