Giant pipe segments have washed up on the coast of Norfolk, UK.

The 2.4m diameter plastic pipes, with the longest beached segment 480m long, washed up at Winterton and Sea Palling.

They came loose as they were being towed to Algeria for a large project.

The pipes would be relocated to an offshore location north of Lowestoft, where they will await repair work to prepare them for a final tow back to the Norwegian manufacturers – lasting weeks.
