Weston-Super-Mare: Walking Down the Beaches Looking For Tinned Peaches

by | 30th, July 2008

WHAT will residents of Weston-Super-Mare do now their pier is no more?

Is it back to collecting bit of sand-blasted broken glass on the beach, watching the rain drop races on the window and wondering what magical cities of gold and silver lie across the grey seas?

Says “jubilant” Nicola Hesketh in the Sun:

“Something like this doesn’t happen every day. I found a massive can of peaches and three £1 coins”.

But beachcombers and bounty hunters should take care. Not everyone might be so lucky and hit the jackpot.

Says coastguard officer Ian Taylor:

“The main danger is that all the debris has nails in it. Some are six inch nails and could easily go into someone’s foot.”
It’s what the Great British holiday is all about.
Last one to the salvage yard is on holiday in Spain…
