Such a move could mean Britons getting the go-ahead to travel to the Greek Islands, the Canaries or the Balearics this summer, even if Greece and Spain remain on the amber list.

‘Sea snot’ covering Turkish shoreline blamed on global warming and sewage
Substance could pose problem to fish and eventually humans

Scientists have warned that the substance is increasing due to climate change.

The sea snot, which had not been seen in the Sea of Marmara before 2007 and has been proliferating over the last six months, could pose a problem to fish and eventually humans.

The issue is caused by phytoplankton that can grow out of control when nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus become widely available in seawater, such as when nutrient-rich untreated sewage flows into it.

An old one, but oh so true...

Q: How can you tell when a politician's lying?
(or an aide/SPAD)

A: Their lips move
