Buxton’s ‘blue lagoon’ turned black to prevent gatherings


The water at the Harpur Hill Quarry near Buxton is what’s known for its unique turquoise colour, and has been nicknamed the 'Blue Lagoon'. But it has now been dyed black by Derbyshire police in an attempt to deter people from visiting the spot, during the coronavirus pandemic. Officers took the action after reports that people were congregating in the area, despite the nationwide lock-down.
