Russian Hovercraft Lands on Busy Beach

You expect some deckchairs, a few inflatable crocodiles, maybe a jellyfish or two. You do not expect a 500-tonne Russian navy hovercraft to land next to your sandcastle.

Amazingly no-one was injured as the vessel came in to land, as part of a tactical mission.

In brilliantly understated manner, a spokesman for the defence ministry was quoted as saying to local newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that "Docking at the beach ... is a normal event. What people were doing at the beach on the territory of a military (base) is unclear."
