A river in Wales has turned white after a milk tanker overturned and spilled its contents into the water.
May Lewis posted a video on the social media site which showed milky water cascading over a small waterfall.
A tweet from Natural Resources Wales (NRW) read: “An unknown quantity of milk has entered the River Dulais today following a RTC (road traffic accident) that involved a milk tanker which had left the road.”
