A hole dug by some lads on a beach in Dublin ended up on Virgin Media News last night after passers by thought it had been created by a meteor strike.
The story started when walker Dave Kennedy found a crater on Portmarnock beach and was convinced that the rock he found inside had come from outer space.

However a video has since emerged of a group of lads digging the hole on Saturday, using kids shovels.
