Naples River of Trash

Storms have been battering Italy from north to south, east to west causing destruction and loss of life.  The rain also filled a river with rubbish as this video shows.

Here is a video which shows the trash in full flow.

Sadly, the chances are the refuse will end up in the Mediterranean sea.

How the rubbish ended up in the river is not clear.  Investigations will take place, no doubt.
