AN unusual object has been spotted at a Northumberland beach.
Vicky and Peter Broughton came across the 6ft long item at Druridge Bay. It appears to be made of wood and rope.
Mrs Broughton said: “We go to the beach every morning, but it is the first time we have seen this particular thing.
“The sands have been moving a lot lately in the high winds and exposing different sea defences. This looks to us rather like an old ship capstan or something similar.
“I would be really interested if anyone could give us more information about it.”
