Any idear what is towing her??

Comment from my "Local Correspondent"

She came to the Tay on 22nd June last year, reportedly for about three months to be cleaned prior to being taken to Turkey for scrapping, but she remains here after more than a year and will in due course be taken to Norway instead - apparently because the cleaning could not be completed at Dundee and I believe that what has been done has been far more expensive than expected.

She has gone to Norway on her journey to Turkey. Currently berthed in Vatsfjorden east of Stavanger to complete the decontamination.

Looking at where she was berthed in Dundee, I would not be surprised if there had been some local concern about these 'contaminants' being handed there. I would never have bought a Dundee cake ever again!
