The agencies working to salvage the cargo ship that ran aground near Colwyn Bay on Tuesday evening have confirmed that specialists will this afternoon begin preparatory work on the recovery of fuel from the vessel.
Gareth Pritchard from North Wales Police says that “specialists are in place and hope to start work very soon and we are asking the public to keep a safe distance from the scene.”
The owners of the HV Carrier, which ran aground on the north Wales coast last week, have said it is going to be demolished.
Work is continuing to remove the fuel on board the stricken cargo ship on the North Wales coast.
Commuters in Colwyn Bay have been dealing with long tailbacks after police closed the A55 to deal with the tanker that ran aground.
