Ship Grounded off Norfolk Coast

Monday, January 14, 2008
A rescue operation has been launched after a large container ship ran aground off Haisboro Sands. The vessel, The City of Sunderland, is carrying a cargo of 642 Nissan cars and is currently lying on a sand bar eight miles off the north Norfolk coast. There are 13 crew members on board. The 9,576 ton ship became stuck at approximately 2.20am this morning while on a voyage from the port of Zeebrugge to Tees Port.

Two tugs are now on their way up from Felixstowe and it is hoped that the Isle of Man registered vessel can be refloated.

As yet it is unclear how the ship came to be grounded but the coastguard say the crew are not in danger. Source: EDP24
