Cargo ship back alongside at Lyness
ORKNEY Islands Council Marine Services tugs and a pilot boat were deployed to Lyness today after a cargo ship parted moorings.
The Vega Scorpio started to come away from the harbour in high winds.
Also now involved in the operation is the Green Marine multi-cat Green Isle which is on scene.
The Vega Scorpio was taken to Lyness three weeks ago after she dragged her moorings in Scapa Flow in a gale.
With storm force winds forecast, she is now back alongside at Lyness, with ropes on the pier once again.
