Devon residents enjoy unexpected foam party on Seaton Bay beach
Residents from a quiet seaside town in Devon have received an unexpected invitation to a foam party after one washed up on Seaton Bay sea front during yesterday's bad weather.The strange sea foam arrived on the south coast of England last night and covered the whole beach front along Fisherman's Gap leaving local homeowners baffled.
A white sheet of snow appeared to have fallen all along the bay, with spring's barmy weather conditions seemingly taking another strange twist following weeks of up and down temperatures.
Blizzard-like conditions are likely to have sparked the appearance of the sea foam, with locals reporting a combination of blustery winds, heavy rain and choppy waters.
The white foam, which reportedly rose up to waist height, attracted huge crowds who took the opportunity play around in the frothy mess.
Seaton resident Janet Seward, whose house is on the beachfront, said: 'People were visiting all night and playing in it as the whole beach was covered.
'Beach huts are now strewn everywhere due to the high tide.
'We went along and it was an amazing sight with children playing in the foam, which was over their wellies.'
Pictures of the astonishing natural phenomenon have been posted on the Seaton Bay's official Facebook page where residents have been discussing what the foam substance might be.
