Young child playing near an industrial effluent pipeline discharging into the North Sea at Hartlepool, Cleveland. The outfall comes from the Steetley Refractories chemical plant which is visible in the background. The plant produces heat-resistant magnesium-oxide-based powders by reacting dolomitic limestone with sea water. The area is covered with white powdery deposits emitted from the factory chimney.
