Now refloated and more-or-less back where she started.

Cash deposit for the salvors needed.
She has only just ended an extended stay at Terneuzen from 15 May to 7 Dec.  Firstly with financial problems, presumably over Murmansk Shipping Co's financial difficulties

and then a 71-day detention after port state control inspection.  Supposed to be heading for Ceuta

So will it be checked over to see if there is any underwater damage?

She has been inspected and a fuel-tank leak found, though there are no reports of pollution [perhaps the leak is into another internal space? Or just too small and slow to show up if it is diesel, for example].  But she is now detained under port state control until it is fixed and the ship has been brought in to Falmouth harbour this morning under tow and is now anchoring in Carrick Roads.

David,
Thanks for the links very interesting.
So who pays for the repairs when in this case the owners are in dire financial straits?
