A river in Wales ran white as a milk tanker overturned and spilled content into the river.  

Currently, Natural Resources Wales is assessing its impact on the River Dulais in Llanwrda, Carmarthenshire. 

In a tweet, @NatResWales posted last April 15: “An unknown quantity of milk has entered the River Dulais today following a RTC that involved a milk tanker which had left the road.”

“This has led to significant discoloration along the river & officers have been on site to assess the impact & will continue tomorrow morning.”

The dairy-filled truck crashed off the A482 in Carmarthenshire and ended up in the River Dulais. Further, the footage shows the tanker started to leak gallons of milk into the river, dramatically changing its color.

Another video showed a milky white water cascading over a small waterfall. Many residents saw the creamy white water cascading over a small waterfall as the milk was swept downstream.

One passerby jested: “All we needed was a giant bowl of cornflakes or Weetabix and it would have been perfect.”

Another commenter said: “It was an incredible sight – quite surreal really to see this white water running down the river.”

Last April 16, the road remained closed between the A40 Llandeilo turn off and Bridgend Inn. Authorities further explained the milk tanker still needs to be emptied and recovered.
