Astonishing satellite image reveals how 1.5million tons of debris from Japanese tsunami is being swept towards the US
The latest computer models (pictured) estimate that thousands of tonnes of detritus, which now stretches 4,000 miles across the Pacific, will start washing up this October and carry on into late 2013. Around 4.8million tonnes - including parts of houses, factories, cars and ships - were pulled into the ocean when the earthquake and subsequent tsunami struck Japan in March last year. While heavy items sank, at least 1.5million tonnes of lighter material such as buoys, oil drums and furniture were carried off by tides and the wind on a 4,500-mile journey to North America.
