    Exclamation River Mersey Sand Banks

    Must show you this from yesterday.

    I spotted something strange on the sand banks of the River Mersey yesterday morning and decided to investigate with my god-like zoom (blame Maxy for that phrase). Look what I spotted: (scroll across if the image is too big)







    What is it? It has the Liverpool 08 symbol on it.

    Holy crap, Kev found the hippy I killed!

    I wrapped him up In Liverpool 08 towel which I caught him smoking pot on!

    I just thought It was blasphemous that he was besmirching the capital of culture name by smoking pot In It's face through It's merchandise.

    It looks like some Inflatable stress tool you punch.

    Kev, I wonder if it's a marine air bag? Still doesn't explain the logo though. [scratches head]

    It's weird init? I first though maybe a pleasure cruise or some other kind of celebration aboard a boat may have threw something over-board but it cannot be that otherwise it would be out in the sea by now.

    No doubt the Echo will run a story about it in a week or two.

    That would be my guess or else one of the things that they have over the side of a vessel to cushion the landing. Like they used to use old tires for on the Mersey ferry boats (maybe they still do).
