Lysblink seaways tow under way


THE tow of the Lysblink Seaways is well under way with no ingress of water.

It’s expected that she will arrive at the repair facility at Inchgreen, Greenock on the Firth of Clyde later today.

Hugh Shaw, the Secretary of State’s representative Maritime Salvage and Intervention who agreed the passage plan for the 150 nautical mile trip said the tow had handled well.

The temporary exclusion zone will remain in place around the Lysblink Seaways until she enters the Sound of Jura.

The Scottish Environment Group continues to monitor events and is supporting the work being done.
