[Watch] MAIB Inspecting The Grounded Cargo Ship


The cargo ship carrying luxury cars and machinery, started to list badly and ran aground in January last year.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch(MAIB) started to investigate on the grounding of the vessel which revealed a catalogue of mistakes including the improper distribution of cargo onboard the vessel.

Steve Clinch, chief inspector of marine accidents, said: “It is therefore imperative that working practices adopted by the car carrier industry ensure that there is always sufficient time and that accurate data is available on completion of cargo operations to enable the stability of such vessels to be properly calculated before departure.”

Check out the video to have a look at MAIB inspectors investigating the vessel.
