London – Readers of PRW have once again been asked to help solve the mystery of objects being washed up on UK beaches.
Having helped identify thousands of small blue bungs which were pitching up on the Cornish coast two years ago, readers have been invited to turn their detecting skills to what appear to be large bales of rubber, about a metre square in size, that have been appearing on the county’s southern beaches.
Williams said she had found a number of the 'bales' on her local beach over a period of years, some stamped with the word 'Tjipetir'
Local beachcomber Tracey Williams, who had appealed to PRW readers over the ‘Mystery of the Blue Bungs’ in September 2014, said: “We’re trying to find out how old these bales of rubber are, and where they’re coming from.
“At least, we’re assuming they’re rubber. There has been much speculation in local press as to the contents – drugs, toxic waste or fuel – but as far as we are aware, they are bales of rubber.”
