Three hundred unopened bread loaves found in Thamesmead canal
Well, this is a weird one.
Workers in Thamesmead have dredged up 300 loaves of bread still unopened in plastic wrappers.
Of all the places to dispose of such a thing, which is odd to begin with, what kind of person does it in canal teeming with wildlife such as swans?
Canals Team spent all day yesterday cleaning up one of our lakes, today we found over 300 mouldy loaves still in plastic wrapping dumped in the same lake. .WHY??? #Thamesmead pic.twitter.com/1YtKOHLGDf

The workers do a fine job but the sheer amount of dumped rubbish is immense. Fortunately they appear to have some clues as to who did this.
Let’s just hope the tip off isn’t half-baked.
Damn – almost got there without a dire pun.
After splashing out to renew website hosting I’ve launched a summer funding appeal. Any help much appreciated.
