A LOWESTOFT family woke up to a surprising sight yesterday morning when they discovered a yellow canoe in their back garden.

Estelle Mann, of Minos Road, heard strange noises outside on Wednesday night, but was shocked to find a canoe sitting in her back yard the next morning.

“I heard a noise that sounded like something being dragged along the floor. I put the light on but couldn't see anything, so went to bed,” she said.

The next morning, she saw something yellow through the frosted glass of her bathroom and wondered what it might be.

“I went downstairs to investigate further only to find a big yellow canoe in my back garden. Someone had managed to haul it up and throw it over a six foot fence and locked gate, whilst avoiding the washing pole. Was this a prank or fly tipping gone mad?” she said.
