BIZARRE messages offering people a “free rocket launcher” and “free tickets to China” appeared on a bin.

The colourful, child-like messages were posted outside the Sainsbury’s store in New England Street, Brighton.

Messages daubed on the paper said: “Pick a number one to ten, I will get it.”

Another said: “Love and peach.”

A final message wrote: “Free tickets to China, your risk.”

It may be a reference to the recent strain of coronavirus, a deadly strain which has seen a city in China put under lockdown.

The Home Office has confirmed 14 people in the UK are being tested for the virus.

Meanwhile quarantines have been put in place around the world.

The reason for posting such bizarre messages in felt tip on a bin is a mystery.
