As the Gravell family enjoyed a day out at their local beach, they stumbled across a metal sphere that they believed to be a buoy. And the clan were fascinated with the washed-up item – mainly because of the many barnacles that had lodged themselves to its side. But as the Gravell children posed happily beside the curiosity for their mom, they had no idea how dangerous the item was – nor its potential to turn deadly.
The Gravells – mom Kelly, dad Gareth and kids Erin and Ellis – hail from the coastal town of Burry Port in Carmarthenshire, Wales. And when Kelly and Gareth aren’t busy with their waste management company, they enjoy trips out to the beach with their children – much like many parents who live by the shore.
