Note how close the grounded ship is to the Raynes Jetty, and the Dolos that form the protection for the A55 expressway. There are 20,000 of these huge 5 Tonne anchor like concrete structures on this section of the expressway.
Ship Grounded off Colwyn Bay, North Wales. Video of the German owned ship the Carrier, a cargo boat loaded with limestone aggregate from the Raynes Jetty Llanddulas, North Wales.
All crew have been safely rescued from the cruel sea.
There are now fears of pollution, and it is believed a small quantity of oil has spilled into the sea.
This is the second disaster related to the Llanddulas Jetty in 6 months – with another ship loaded with Llanddulas limestone sinking off Bardsey Island last November.
