Work to salvage a 62-foot yacht is likely to begin tomorrow.

The private vessel, which sank on Friday 17th November, struck the Ruaudiere Buoy in St Aubin's Bay and is currently south of La Moye.

The wreck has been monitored daily to ensure it poses no danger to navigation.

Ports of Jersey say it will take a 20-man professional salvage team, including 14 divers, to coordinate the operation.

A heavy lift barge is expected to arrive this evening and the lift is expected to commence on Wednesday.

The Maritime Exclusion zone will be in force from 8am on Tuesday morning.
