AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Thousands of sports shoes washed up onto a Dutch island Friday after a passing container ship lost part of its cargo, attracting hundreds of local residents anxious to find their size.

Nine containers from the Hamburg-bound ship drifted ashore on the island of Terschelling after an overnight storm, packed with shoes, aluminum briefcases, toys and hamburgers.

Most containers remained sealed, Dutch evening paper Het Parool reported, and police were guarding their contents, although they turned a blind eye to any locals selecting a few shoes.
