‘Sunken Vessel of Interest’ Located


A team searching for a fishing boat that went missing with three men onboard has found a “sunken vessel of significant interest”, says an article on BBC.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) said a vessel had been located in the Colwyn Bay area.

The ‘missing incident’

Ross Ballantine, 39, Alan Minard, 20, and skipper Carl McGrath, 34, had been on the Nicola Faith which failed to return to Conwy’s port in January. The bodies of all three were found last month.

Investigation to continue

It said the Chief Inspector of Marine Accidents has issued a notice of direction to prohibit access around the wreck, requiring that it be left undisturbed pending further investigation.

It prohibits anchoring, fishing by nets, trawls, or lines, or any diving within a 200 meters radius of the wreck.
