A couple of days ago I made an entry about the cargo ship 'Napoli' and the daring but successful rescue of her 26 crew from a life raft in appalling conditions. Then I understood that tugs would be towing her to France. It transpired that an attempt would be made to get Navoli to Portland. However because of her deteriorating condition a new plan was put into effect to beach her in Lyme Bay between Sidmouth and Branscombe. I expect there will be some sightseers on that bit of coast in the next few days.
