Beach combing for Tim

Lovely story about people who go searching beaches in Cornwall and Devon looking for, and finding, Lego.  
In 1997 a ship that contained, among other cargo, nearly 5 million Lego pieces sank near Cornwall.  Ever since people have been finding Lego bits on the South English Coast. Lego collectors plan their holidays around this.  In an ironic twist it seems that many of the pieces have a nautical theme - so people find seaweed, life jackets or if they are very lucky an octopus ( 3 of them found) or a dragon.
If we thought it was police Lego bet Tim would be there in a heartbeat!
