Famous beach in south India flooded with 'toxic foam'

The Marina Beach in Chennai, south India is covered with multiple layers of white foam caused by pollution flowing into the ocean.

This has recurred frequently since October, with footage seen here from November 29 showing the foam covering a 7km stretch of coast from Foreshore estate to Thiruvanmiyur.

Reportedly heavy rains had brought down chemical compounds and organic substrates into the ocean that whipped up the foam.
