New island rises from the sea off German coast
An island the size of 25 football pitches has appeared seemingly out of nowhere off the coast of Germany.
The landmass, which is composed of sandbanks, gradually emerged from the violent waters of the North Sea over the past few years.

Winds blew seeds from across Europe, and 49 species of plants have been detected on it.
