Sailing club warns of 'cesspool' seas

Sailing regattas in Dubai have been cancelled after warnings of E.coli bacteria existing in sewage seas of The Gulf have been posted.

Manager of the Offshore Sailing Club in the oil-rich, middle-eastern state, Keith Mutch told The Times: ‘It’s a cesspool. Our tests show too many E. coli to count. It’s like swimming in a toilet.’

Mutch has reportedly discovered that dozens of sewage lorries carrying human waste from Dubai’s 1.3 million inhabitants emptied their tanks into storm drains.
