Colwyn Bay ship: Salvage plan to be decided

The coastguard, police and other agencies involved in the salvage effort are due to meet at 2pm this afternoon.

They're set to discuss the best way forward in salvaging the stricken vessel, which ran aground at Llanddulas on Tuesday night.

Although the risk to the environment is said to be 'minimal', around 40,000 litres of fuel on board may need to be pumped out before the vessel can be removed.
