Stricken Ship in the English Channel Is Being Towed

Thursday, January 18, 2007
Bloomberg reported that a container ship that ran into difficulties in the English Channel is now being towed to the French port of Le Havre, said an official from the company that hired it. An official at Mediterranean Shipping Co. SA in Geneva, which has hired the MSC Napoli, said the ship was under tow. Earlier today, British Broadcasting Corp. reported that a vessel was sinking in the sea between England and France. The U.K.'s Maritime & Coastguard Agency said the vessel wasn't being towed. All 26 crew have abandoned ship and two Royal Navy helicopters have been dispatched to assist in the operation, which is being led by the French coast guard, the Maritime & Coastguard said in a statement on its Web site. Further questions to Mediterranean Shipping were directed to the ship's owner, Zodiac Maritime Agencies Ltd. in London. Officials from Zodiac declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg News. The vessel got into trouble off Lizard, the Maritime & Coastguard said. Source: Bloomberg
