Thousands of crabs die along Thanet’s coast, This is Kent, January 6, 2011:

THOUSANDS of dead crabs and mysterious deposits of black sand have littered the Thanet coastline.

Volunteer coastal warden, Tony Sykes said: “We suspect that climate change and warmer weather has lured the crabs towards the shoreline. …

Beach walkers at Viking Bay have also discovered large deposits of black sand.

Thanet geologist Dr Alasdair Bruce said: “My first thought was that it may be some sort of oil contamination but I am very pleased to say it wasn’t. The sand itself is naturally black.”
