Who’s poisoning the Humber?

After a prolonged dry spell, it’s rare that water in the Humber is cloudy. Today, water in the river had an unpleasant opacity to it. I’ve seen this happen before under similar conditions and attempted to trace the source on my bike but it seems to be well north of Weston. You can see the comparison between today (August 25th) and last Monday (19th).

Notice that the spill is recent as water close to the shore is still clear.
