Pricey boat sinks on delivery

The sinking boat

If you'd splashed out on something really expensive, you'd probably expect it be be delivered in mint condition.

So imagine how the owners of a brand new speedboat must have felt when they heard the two-man crew delivering it had crashed it into rocks in Cornwall!

The boat, which was built in America and cost a whopping 100,000, was being driven to it's new home in Ireland when the accident happened.

Luckily no-one was hurt, but the boat has been wrecked and is sinking fast.
