A HUGE unloading platform has floated down to a Costa Del Sol beach.
The 43-metres-long and 20-metres-high superstructure washed 20km down the Mediterranean from Malaga City to Benalmadena.
The platform was being transported by a tug boat when the cables broke.
It eventually washed up on rocks at Benalnatura beach.
There was no crew onboard, and the port authorities have assured people it is not dangerous as there is no fuel onboard.
There were fears the platform could crash into Puerto Marina, and three tugboats and the Maritime Agency are now working to control the platform.
Qeues of several kilometres were reported as curious motorists slowed down to look at the platform.
