Plastic debris is now discovered in SEA SALT as litter reaches oceans and contaminates our food

Tiny pieces of the material have been found in sea salt on sale in the UK, Europe, the US and China.

It confirms that plastic litter reaching oceans is being broken down and getting in to our food.

Previous studies have found that fish such as cod, as well as shellfish and crustaceans including scampi caught off the British coast, contain plastic particles.

Studies by experts at the University of Exeter have found that the entire food chain of sea creatures – from zooplankton through to crustaceans or copepods, mussels, crabs, lobster and fish – have effectively become contaminated by microplastics.

Shocking video shows just how much rubbish ends up in the sea
