Russkie cargo ship re­floated

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A RUS­SIAN cargo ship which run aground off a beach in Corn­wall as strong winds whipped across the south­west has been re­floated.

Emer­gency ser­vices were launched at 6am to help the 16,000-ton Kuzma Minin bulk car­rier stuck off Fal­mouth Bay.

The 550-ft-long Ger­man built ship was moored in the bay when its an­chor started drag­ging, say coast­guards.

The ship’s own­ers blamed the port’s “un­safe nav­i­ga­tion con­di­tions”.

No-one was hurt.
