SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A cleanup crew on a beach in Wales has discovered a delivery box from a Massachusetts newspaper.

The Salem News reports (https://bit.ly/1Sv6yUt ) volunteers found the Salem Evening News box washed up on the shores of the Irish Sea.

Tidy Towns project officer Lee Oliver says he determined the box was from Salem, Massachusetts, when he saw a witch, the newspaper’s logo, on it. Oliver says Wales does not have such newspaper delivery boxes.

The name “Salem Evening News” was partly worn away. The newspaper hasn’t used that name in about a decade.

Experts say the box couldn’t have been in the water for more than a few months. They say it could’ve ended up in the water after being inadvertently picked up with the snow last winter.
