Giant yellow buoy removed from beach after storms
A BRIGHT yellow buoy washed up from the sea at Branksome Beach was removed this afternoon after it was brought in by the tide due to the recent wet weather.
Dorset residents flocked to take a look at the one-ton buoy, usually found further out to sea, before it was attended to by Wessex Water.

Workmen used a flatbed and crane to lift it off the sands of the beach, ready to move it and instate it into the sea on Tuesday.
It comes just days after a red buoy was seen after being washed up on Sandbanks Beach due to the high tides brought to the South coast last week.
Borough of Poole took to their Facebook page yesterday to say that work is being carried out to clear the prom along Branksome Beach of sand, to make it passable following the recent storms.
However, they said that with more storms forecast, they asked for residents' patience as the sand may get blown back up onto the prom.
