The bottles are sealed but witnesses say some have leaked
Thousands of bright pink plastic detergent bottles have washed up on beaches in Cornwall.
They started arriving at Poldhu Cove on the Lizard on Sunday, and National Trust volunteers have been clearing them away as they are said to pose a risk to wildlife.
The bottles are sealed, but witnesses say some have leaked.
The National Trust said it believed a container had gone overboard from a ship, during the stormy weather.
Other nearby coves including Gunwalloe have also been affected, conservationists said.
