Sheffield’s fountains turn yellow

The fountain at Sheffield’s Peace Gardens turned yellow recently to celebrate 100 days until the Tour de France arrives in Sheffield.

Yellow was chosen to represent the winning jersey at the Tour de France. In the evening UV lights were set up near the fountain to make them luminous.

The water was made yellow by adding fluorescein which is usually used for medical purposes like eye examinations.
