BBC news story about unidentified yellow waxy substance.

I found a lump of this stuff a couple of weeks ago, at a cove just around the corner from Cwmtydu. I thought it looked like beeswax, so I took it home with me! :D

Hopefully it isn't nuclear waste...

I remember reading years back that Nostradamus predicted that a something yellow

would land on western shores..!! Conclude what you wish, i still believe a cargo full of bananas..! :)

Looks like amber. My mum found a big bit on the Devon coast years ago, and I think it commonly washes up on the western coasts of britain. Your local museum should be able to tell you.

EDIT: Just seen your BBC story link (doh!). Very weird....does it glow??? or tick? or make geigercounters go nuts? Run..............

Seems like this stuff was probably vegetable fat (yuk). Foul smelling apparently - though my bit doesn't smell at all.

So, Snowbear closest with tallow perhaps.

Thanks for the reassuring replies from academics... especially as I was carrying it about in my coat pocket for a few days!

Think I'll put some toast on.
