The break-up of the vessel involved in the region's worst fishing disaster for decades has begun in the Isle of Man.
The Solway Harvester sank nearly 14 years ago, with the loss of seven fishermen from South West Scotland.
It was raised by the Manx Goverment in 2000.
It has been kept at Douglas Harbour, in case it was needed as evidence for any legal cases. But the decision has now been made to scrap it.
