Shipwreck flotsam. Beached container and a barrel floating in the sea off Branscombe beach in Devon, UK. This flotsam is from the beached MSC Napoli (not seen) which ran aground near here in January 2007. The ship was carrying almost 2400 containers, about 150 of which contained hazardous chemical substances. The beaches were eventually cleared of cargo from the shipwreck, but not before many of the beached containers had been scavenged by members of the public.
