Vessel has been towed closer to the UK coast, but adverse weather prevents boarding of safety experts.

The managing agents report follows:

MSC FLAMINIA and its accompanying tug boats FAIRMOUNT EXPEDITION (Fairmount Marine) and ANGLIAN SOVEREIGN (L.P. Knight) have arrived on the southwestern coast of the UK. The planned safety inspection [regarding pernission to pass through the English Channel & other European waters en route towards Wilhelmshaven, Germany] will be conducted as soon as weather conditions make possible a secure transfer of the experts onboard the vessel.
