Thousands of starfish wash up on beach 

 

STORM ANGUS: Thousands of starfish wash up on beach after rough waves batter coastline

THOUSANDS of stranded starfish were discovered on a beach after Storm Angus battered Britain’s coastline.
The creatures were dislodged from the seabed in the rough waves and left strewn across the stone-covered sands as the tide went out.

Shocked walkers discovered the starfish on Southsea beach, in Portsmouth, Hampshire, and tried to return any still alive to the water.

But a large number were already dead after being out of the water too long and some had even been thrown off the beach by the stormy conditions and onto the nearby promenade.

Peter Whitelock, who regularly combs the beach for valuable items, was shocked after finding the creatures when he arrived and says he has never seen anything like it

The 62-year-old, of Portsmouth, said: “There were thousands of them. I’ve never seen so many all in one place.

“It must have been the storm that brought them all in from the sea.”
