Lulworth Cove, Dorset.<br />
<br />
A rare bean that has travelled over 5,000 miles from the Brazilian rain forest has been found washed up on a south coast beach.<br />
<br />
Stunned beachcomber Jim Gale picked up the small sea heart bean during a visit to Lulworth Cove in Dorset.<br />
<br />
The bean, that looks like an oversized conker, would have fallen from a monkey ladder vine that grows in South America.<br />
<br />
It would have dropped into a tributary of the Amazon River and then been washed into the Atlantic.
