Explosives detonated on MSC Napoli

At about ten past two this afternoon explosives were remotely detonated on the MSC Napoli in an attempt to cut the deck plates close to the accommodation block where the ship's hull is already severely fractured.

I don't know at this stage whether this action has resulted in any further pollution.

The intention tomorrow is to cut through the vessel's longitudinal joists with the hope that the forward part can be dragged away.

Watch this space!
