Locals stunned after half-kilometre of giant pipe washes up on the UK coast


The gigantic pipeline totally dwarfs the people who have gone to see it, after it washed up on a beach.

We’ve all walked along the beach and seen something that had presumably drifted in on the current. But probably not like this…

Locals in Norfolk were stunned – and somewhat amused – when nearly 500 metres of giant piping washed up on the beach after drifting free of a Norwegian tug boat that had collided with a container ship.

At 2.5m in width, the piping was wide enough to drive a small car into and dwarfed residents who stopped by for a look and a walk atop the unusual arrival.

Yep, that pipe is bloody big...
Yep, that pipe is bloody big…

But authorities are saying the pipe should not be approached in case it moves and crushes people.
