A Harley-Davidson motorcycle lost in last year's tsunami has washed up on a Canadian island about 4,000 miles away.

The bike was found in a container where it had been stored by its owner, Ikuo Yokoyama. He was tracked down via the licence plate number, Fuji TV reported yesterday. Mr Yokoyama lost three members of his family in the tsunami, and is now living in temporary housing in Miyagi prefecture.

The bike is among the first items lost in the tsunami to reach North America. In March, an Alaska man found a football and later a volleyball from Japan.
