BRITANNICA HAV http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1456742
Pasajes/Pasaia for Keadby
Fishing vessel is Belgian DEBORAH Z121 (IMO 8871766), now returned to Zeebrugge
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=2529364

Collison seems to have been at 1450UTC, then she turned back on reciprocal course
Last AIS signal from 50°13.068N 000°30.113W at 1541UTC, presumably moment of capsize.  Wreck has since drifted south-westerly and now being attended by ABEILLE LIBERTÉ (ETV) and Trinity House GALATEA (mobile wreck marking). 2 warships standing nearby, including Gendarmerie maritime ARAMIS

Upturned hull marked with a transponder - four hatchcovers lost, and at least one floating recovered during the night - see video

Dutch tug SEA BULLDOG (IMO 9712412) has come down from Vlissingen and, with tug TSM KERMOR from Ouistreham, presumably dealing with the four corralled hatch-covers and other debris.

Yesterday's work on the capsized BRITANNICA HAV:

BRITANNICA HAV has now arrived in Le Havre under tow of ABEILLE LIBERTÉ with towline secured through the bowthruster tunnel.

Now BRITANNICA HAV's sister CELTICA HAV reported taking a list on Tuesday, when entering the River Neath for Briton Ferry (from Kiel Canal), and returned to Swansea Bay.  Yesterday escorted by tugs into Swansea port.

Hope such things don't come in threes.
