LIGHTSHIP TOWED AWAY

Canal Boat - - News -

The Canal & River Trust’s en­force­ment team dealt with a larger than usual ves­sel re­cently when for­mer Mersey Bar lightship Planet was re­moved from Salt­house Dock in Liver­pool. CRT said it was a “dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion” to take the ship away to a “safe and se­cure lo­ca­tion” away from Liver­pool, but that there had been safety breaches, money was owed, the ship (used as a café and bar) had traded with­out a li­cence to moor or trade since 2015, and at­tempts to re­solve is­sues had been un­suc­cess­ful.
