– Ray Carson, Holyhead Coastguard
Police are meeting with coastguards now. Despite some dramatic pictures, as far as we can see the vessel is still intact. The winchman and 2 crew members who were left on the ship are safe and well. From our perspective as coastguards that's the important part over.
We're delighted we've been able to get them all off board safely. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency which deals with pollution and spillage is on its way to North Wales and ready to inspect at first light.
