Recovery of giant pipes that washed up on Norfolk beaches begins

Salvage experts have begun the job of removing four giant pipes that washed up on beaches in Norfolk.

The pipes came loose after being hit by a container ship while being towed to Algeria.

Twelve sections broke free and four have since washed ashore at Winterton and Sea Palling.

The largest pipe has a diameter of 2.4m (8ft) and is 480m (1,547ft) long.
