Palm oil warning

By a County Press reporter

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

 

REPORTS of palm oil washing up on south coast beaches have prompted a warning about the risk to animals from the white chalky substance.

It is not dangerous to humans but can injure animals if ingested.

If found, the advice from Hampshire Fire and Rescue, is: "Wear double vinyl gloves and place a strong plastic bag over the substance and bag it up, place the outer gloves in with the oil, tie it off, then place into a second strong bag and also tie off. This can be disposed of in ordinary refuse."

Anyone who finds some can contact the local authority to remove it.
