A consignment of Scott Bikes' has been recovered from the ocean of Santos Brazil after 45 shipping containers fell from the Log-In Pantanal during heavy weather.

One or more of the containers contained Scott Scale hardtails, some of which were 'caught' by a fishing boat.

Police have arrested 11 people for the looting.

Many of the containers burst open upon hitting the water but others stayed afloat long enough for looters to begin raiding them.
