Mountain climbers in England discovered something rather unexpected at the top of Scafell Pike.
Known for being the tallest mountain in England, climbers who reach the summit of Scafell Pike are used to being treated to fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and a firm sense of accomplishment. On this occasion however, mountain walk leader Dave Ascough came across something else entirely - the body of an octopus located about 33m from the top.
"My first reaction was that someone might have carried it up there, but it's quite possible a bird could have brought it up there," he said. While littering is a problem in the area it doesn't quite explain why someone would have climbed a mountain with an octopus and then left it there.
"The body of an octopus has been found during a litter pick near the top of England's highest mountain."
