Mysterious metal spikes, which appeared on a beach near Lowestoft, have been safely removed.

HM Coastguard Lowestoft and Southwold rescue officers were called out twice in quick succession on Thursday evening, and yesterday morning (Friday), to investigate after a 'very sharp metal spike' had mysteriously appeared on Pakefield Beach.

The teams were called out once more at 5.20pm last night (Friday) after the metal spike has been spotted in the waves pointing towards the beach. A spokesman for the coastguards said: 'We met up with Waveney Norse in an attempt to identify the object that was seen in the water at Pakefield. Thanks to the low tide the spike was fully visible. The team were successful in removing the spike from the sand. We also located one more spike further up the beach and successful removed this also without the assistance of Waveney Norse.'

No further spikes were spotted in the area and the teams were stood down.
