The Environment Agency has explained the presence of a bright green substance that has been spotted in the River Aire.

The discolouration was seen near Bridgewater Place by a passer-by who believed it was caused by pollution.

However, the substance is in fact a dye which is used to trace watercourses and river flows, and is completely harmless.

It is being used by river management teams to investigate and identify illegal discharges into the nearby Hol Beck tributary.
