The aftermath of Storm Emma left dead sea life strewn including starfish and octopus strewn across a sea wall.

Having been stuck inside for five days because the horrendous weather, Nick Eogan took a stroll with wife Nuala on Sunday March 4 but was greeted with an almost apocalyptic sight.

Walking down the seafront in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland, the retiree spotted a line of creatures washed up on the stone wall.

Following the trail to its conclusion, the 69-year-old different types of fish, starfish and octopus can be seen in the footage that has been viewed by 122,000 times online.

Nick said: “I was completely amazed at the different creatures washed up.

“There must have been hundreds of them, all species.

“Some of them I recognised, but others I had never seen before in my life.

“I’ve walked along this prom for the last 50 years and have never seen so many different types of fish before.

“There was a crowd of people just staring at the line of fish.

“They were just as shocked as I was at what they were seeing.”
