Thousands of pink bottles wash up on Cornish beaches

Thousands of bright pink plastic detergent bottles believed to be from a container ship, have washed up on beaches in Cornwall.

They started arriving at Poldhu Cove on the Lizard on Sunday, and National Trust volunteers have been clearing them away as they are said to pose a risk to wildlife.

But it is not the first time unusual items have washed up on the UK coastline.
