With France, like the rest of the world, in the grip of Star Wars fever, an intergalactic spaceship and its two storm troopers, crash landed onto a Normandy beach at the weekend. Well, kind of.

The spaceship on the beach at Urville-Nacqueville near Landemer was actually a remnant of World War Two that two artists had decided to give a futuristic makeover.
