Huge pipes 480 meters long wash up on British beach after ship accident
The pipes, approximately 2.5 meters in diameter and under tow to Algeria from Norway, washed up by Horsey and Sea Palling in Norfolk. Eight pipes remain under control offshore.
Authorities said the beached pipes ranged from around 200 meters to 480 meters long.
They said there was no danger or potential for pollution from the pipes and that two specialist companies, Dutch Marine BV and Marine Towing Services, were working to remove them.
All pipes are expected to be secured at a single location before being towed back to the manufacturer, Pipelife Norway. ■
