Stern section of Napoli to be moved away

A story on the local news today states that the stern section of MSC Napoli currently in residence just off Branscombe Beach in Lyme Bay is to be removed in one piece. There is a salvage firm apparently (I think a Dutch company but not sure of that) who reckon that it is possible to carry out this operation and not have to cut up Napoli where she is now. October has been mentioned as the month when this would happen. No doubt it will depend on a favourable weather window.

Nothing as yet on the Maritime and Coastguard Agency website about this decision; no doubt the media will be catching up with the news in the next few hours!

The 'all in one piece' method has to be the best way of getting the stern section away but it seems that nobody imagined it could be done.
