News just in - There's been an astonishing twist of events just off the Bembridge shoreline as spectacularly large shoals of baked beans began amassing just yards out to sea.
Crowds of local children - many wearing odd socks - who were initially line fishing for goldfish, quickly realised that the huge reddish brown clouds in the water were not, in fact, goldfish, but massive shoals of wild baked beans.
Hundreds of locals quickly flocked to the beach clutching any kind of container in their grasping hands as they plunged into the surf in order to reap the baked bean bonanza harvest.
One local man arrived in a pick up truck with a dozen wheelie bins on the back and started filling the bins with baked beans, which he scooped up in a coal scuttle before transferring them to the wheelie bins.
"You've got to make the most of it while it lasts," the unidentified man, who wishes to remain unidentified and anonymous told Skoob News. "This only 'appens about once every fifty year. I'm hoping to fill the wheelie bins up. We'll then take the blighters to a cannery and have 'em tinned up. It's great is this! It means my family can have beans on toast anytime we feel like it! And even a fried egg on the top if we want it! Providing of course, we can get hold of some eggs and bread."
Marine biologist, Nervy Plimsoll explained:
"I think the beans have become disorientated by Royal Navy submarine radio transmissions or something. It's unusual for them to virtually beach themselves in such a fashion - but hey! It's a bonus for the locals."
More as we get it.
