Stricken livestock carrier towed into Fowey

Comments (0)

A 7,000-tonne livestock carrier is being towed in to Fowey by tug this morning after engine failure left her stranded for 18 hours.

The Express 1, en route from Germany to Ireland, reported her engine failure about lunchtime yesterday from her position about 15 miles south of Falmouth.

The vessel managed to anchor herself to maintain her position until the tug arrived to take the Express 1 under tow in the early hours of this morning.
