Thousands of eggs wash up on German beach

Kids on the German island of Langeoog were 'eggcited' when thousands of plastic eggs containing toys had turned up on their beach.

It's believed that the eggs came from five containers which had washed off a cargo ship in bad weather.

The tiny German island of Langeoog is located in the North Sea and has a population of under 2000 people.

The mayor of the island, Uwe Garrels decided to allow the local children to collect as many of the eggs as they wanted.
