I am down in Dorset working on my Oil Age Hut. I have been struck by the vast amounts of small plastic debris visible on the sandy shoreline. Visiting Lyme Regis this evening, my eye was caught by the huge number of yellow nurdles on the tideline... Yellow is not the typical colour and to find this type of nurdle predominating is unusual.
Having subsequently investigated, my local contacts tell me that yellow nurdles were shed in the MSC Napoli disaster off Branscombe in January 2007 and that this is the likely source... If you know more, please do get in touch!
