Solent Coastguard have issued a warning to all mariners along the South Coast for an invasion of fluffy pink hippo's, red legged turkeys and dog toys all being the aftermath of several containers going adrift from the large container vessel ‘Bunga Pelangi’

Wonder how long before someone attempts salvage - enough whisky there to keep the average dive club going for at least a few weeks!!!

Yes, of course they lost four containers full of whisky m'lud
