Border crossing crooks were blamed after an entire beach including beach huts, sun loungers and sand were stolen. Land locked Hungary has no beaches of its own and tonnes of sand had been shipped in to make the riverside at Mindszentas as near to the real thing as possible. But managers who closed up the leisure park for winter have found that 6,000 cubic metres of sand as well as playground rides, the huts, and even the wooden shops had been stolen. Head of the local council Etelka Repas said: "It is crazy - I would have thought it was impossible to steal an entire beach. It was cleaned up and covered for the winter and then suddenly this week we saw that it had totally disappeared - beach and all." Eight new EU states from the former communist bloc, including Hungary, joined the Schengen zone - which means an end to border controls between EU states in Europe. "It has probably been shipped over the border now without any checks being made where it will be easier to get rid of," Repas said. Police are investigating. http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2648931.html
