'Stay away' Giant 8ft wide pipes wash up on English beach sparking crush warning

The huge pipes washed on Norfolk beaches after they came loose when a container ship crashed into them.

A vessel was towing the pipes from Norway to Algeria when disaster struck in the North Sea.

The bizarre site has attracted an array of visitors with pictures emerging of people walking on the pipes and even taking selfies next to them.

The pipes came free when they were being towed off the coast of East Anglia and were washed up by Horsey and Sea Palling in Norfolk.

The Norweigan firm which made the pipes, Pipelife, has urged people to keep away as they warn there is a risk of getting crushed.

Pipelife Norway CEO Kjell Larsen said: "The pipes were under transport to Algeria when a container ship crashed into them and drove right through."
