A four-year-old girl from Tamworth was shocked to receive a reply all the way from Australia after throwing a message in a bottle into the sea.
Jasmine Hudson was on a family holiday in Bournemouth when she threw the bottle from the pier on the 10th April 2012.
She penned the message after she received a kit from her grandparents, writing her name, age, address and where she threw the bottle into the sea.
A woman found the bottle on a beach in South Australia five months later.
