Meeting point: A ship sails across the junction of the polluted Yangtze River (left) and the Jialin River in Chongqing, China, yesterday

Shock: The Yangtze river, which runs through the city in south-western China, turned a bright shade of orange-red yesterday

Dirty/clean: A ship sails across the junction of the Yangtze River and the Jialin River at the exact spot where the dyed river starts to bleed into the Jialin

In the thick of it: A fisherman goes about his daily business

Bizarre: The red river gave Chongqing an apocalyptic appearance yesterday

Check it out! Some residents were so amazed that they collected samples in water bottles

Close-up: Whatever it was that dyed the river was almost orange in colour

Irregular occurrence: A couple make the most of the rare opportunity to get up close to a red river

Thick dye: The Yangtze river washes up on and stains a tiled floor
