Gigantic pipes have been washed up on the beaches of Norfolk in England after they came loose from their vessel, the Conservative Tribune reports.
It was later discovered that the pipes were new and supposed to be transported to the North African country of Algeria for a large project.
Of the four enormous pipes that reached the English shores, the longest is 8 foot wide and 480 meters long and was washed ashore at Sea Palling beach.
Although mystery surrounded the pipes when they were initially spotted, the Norwegian-made plastic bores actually don’t pose any danger or potential for pollution.
The UK’s Maritime & Coastguard Agency said there are eight more pipes offshore but assured they were “under control.”
A recovery operation is set to begin in which all the four pipes will be relocated to a single location before they will be towed back to the manufacturers in Norway, a process that may take several weeks.
