As I write the Atlantic Cartier is back in the port of Liverpool.
The Nuclear Free Local Authorities have just issued a press statement about the ship.
‘ NFLA alarmed about docking of Atlantic Cartier in Liverpool less than four months after it was involved in a major fire involving radioactive materials.’
A key feature of this statement is a list of 20 deficiencies which have been recorded on International Port State Control Inspections.
This in turn raises yet more interesting questions, but more on them anon.
