Thousands of plastic toy eggs flood German beach

Thousands of plastic toy eggs flood German beachThousands of plastic eggs containing small toys have washed on the German North Sea island of Langeoog after Storm Axel battered the country.

The toys are reported to have come from five freight containers belonging to the Danish firm Reederei Maersk that were washed off a cargo ship.

The unexpected arrivals have delighted children on the island.

Langeoog Mayor Uwe Garrels decided to allow local kindergarten children to collect as many of the eggs - each containing little toys with Russian messages inside - as they wanted.

"The surprise eggs have found their way to freedom," Garrels was quoted by broadcaster NDR as saying.

The mayor said that if any foreign companies objected to this, they were invited to help gather thousands of "small plastic bags and other packaging materials" that have been polluting the island's beaches.
