ANL Warringa: CMA CGM

 Lifeboats from Walton and Frinton, and the Harwich have been called out to a container ship ANL Warringa off the coast of Essex which had been reported to be drifting in a major shipping lane.

 
It was reported to be drifting in the North Sea, 20 miles (32 miles) off the Essex coast, in the key route between Hamburg and the East Coast ports.
 
The 260 metre-long Warringa has managed to get an anchor down, not far from a wind turbine. The engineers on-board are trying to re-start the engines of the 50,000 tonne container ship.
 
BBC News reports that one lifeboat remains on the scene awaiting the arrival of commercial tugs to tow the ship to port. Engineers on board are trying to restart the engines.
