A bizarre message in a bottle written in 2001 has washed up on a north Dublin beach - containing tips on Bin Laden's possible whereabouts and the finale of Friends.

Timur Timondegus, eight, found the 18-year-old letter, as he was walking on Malahide beach after enjoying fish and chips with his mum Olesja Akmane, 31.

The schoolboy from Swords unscrewed the bottle and found the anonymous message prophesying that Osama Bin Laden - the then world's most wanted man - was hiding in Kyrgyzstan.

The note in the bottle also predicted the future of Ross and Rachel in the popular US sitcom Friends.

The note suggested al-Qaeda terrorist Bin Laden might be somewhere in Kyrgyzstan in central Asia.

At the time, he was at the centre of a worldwide manhunt and was eventually found and killed in Pakistan.

The message also referred to the final episode of the series seven of Friends - The One with Monica and Chandler's Wedding - which aired on the same day the note was written.
