11 Million Cigarettes Wash Ashore At The Village Of Beer

"A huge shipping container holding around 11 million cigarettes has washed up on a beach – just one mile from Beer.

The vessel – bearing 14 tonnes of tobacco – is one of a reported 517 lost from a cargo ship in the Bay of Biscay last week.

It washed just a mile from Beer – the Devon village which shares its name with the drink often enjoyed with a cigarette.

One beachgoer told the Western Daily Press: “Beer always makes it hard to resist a fag, but it’s even harder when 11 million wash up on your doorstep.”
