"Beachy Head has been evacuated due to a mist smelling of ‘chlorine’, which has left walkers in tears.
Police said up to 50 people have been affected by irritation to eyes and throats after the first reports came in around 5pm today.
Gas seems to have appeared in ‘an unknown haze coming in from the sea’, police said, warning people to stay away from the beaches and to keep doors and windows closed if living near the coast."

this is a developing story. guy talking to sky news reports 'plastic' type smell at the coast then streaming eyes and sore throat. he's 'never known anything like it'. coastguard say source unknown, but haze is blowing in from the sea.

interesting.

sussex police warning people to stay away from beaches and keep all windows and doors closed. wonder if this is coming from a ship fire? just had a brief look at marine traffic radar, no alerts visible in the area (i think - not used to the site).

Are there any oil platforms out there? How about an ocean vessel, maybe a tanker, cleaning its tanks?

Unlikely in sussex.


Maybe a chemical spill from a tanker at sea.

Zombie apocolypse obviously, the injured take 3-4 hours to change. The outbreak will happen at the local hospital and spread across south east England exponentially. The UN declares the UK as a quarantine zone...

i've looked here oil and gas authority map and i don't think there's a rig nearby but again it's not my forte to read these things.

Could this be a WW2 sunken vessel carrying chemicals that has finally corroded enough to leak?

This really, really sounds like the opening scenes from some sort of zombie apocalypse movie.

Probably from all the so called "recycling" they dump at sea!

Video showing a pretty damn big cloud of gas and stoical Brits still sat there on the beach
(gas or no gas if there's a chance of sunshine we'll stick it out!)

Or an off shore terror weapon test?

Patient zero is sat on that beach.
...the outbreak quickly spreads to Kent, Surrey and Hampshire, reports of violent attacks increase, the MSM advise people to stay indoors and avoid infected people...

Quite
As much as I appreciated our occasional English sunshine I'd be off that beach in seconds....why anyone would stick around to get their eyes burnt out is beyond me

Lol yes, I'd do one at the first scent of some horrible chemical, I don't like walking down the cleaning products aisles in supermarkets so it would kill my beach experience and I'd be off.

Beachy Head is know for it's very high cliffs.
People routinely got there to commit suicide.
Horrifically, it takes about 12 seconds to go splat.

Maybe lightning struck the salt water like a giant swimming pool salt water chlorine generator?

Interesting.

It's these types of threads that brought me to ATS.

I'm curious as to what the mist is. I wonder if it's natural.
