The tug Christos 22, damaged after the vessel it was towing collided into its side off Torbay yesterday, is now stable with risk of pollution very low.
Attention has now turned to the towed vessel, an ex-German naval training ship the Emsstrom, which had been listing too heavily for salvors to get onboard.
This vessel has now sunk, approximately 2.5 nautical miles east by north from Hope's Nose, Torquay, in 23 metres (75ft) of water.
This ship is empty and is not a pollution risk.
