WWII lard washes up on beach at Angus nature reserve
Storms over the east coast have resulted in several unusual relics from World War II washing up on an Angus beach.
Staff at St Cyrus nature reserve said four large, barrel-shaped pieces of lard have appeared on the shore.
The fat is believed to have escaped from the wreck of a merchant vessel that was bombed in WW II.
Scottish Natural Heritage said the lard was still a brilliant white and smelled "good enough to have a fry up with."
Should keep the local birds happy for quite while.
