Giant pipes wash up on Norfolk beaches

Giant pipe segments have washed up on the coast of Norfolk.

The 8ft (2.4m) diameter plastic pipes, with the longest beached segment 1,574ft (480m) long, washed up at Winterton and Sea Palling.

They came loose as they were being towed to Algeria for a large project.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency say they pose no danger to the public and will be relocated offshore north of Lowestoft. They will then be towed to Norway.
