Ship aground: MV Carrier main fuel supply 'intact', say coastguards
The remaining fuel on board the MV Carrier cargo ship, which has run aground in north Wales, remained intact on Wednesday evening, according to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
Almost 24 hours after the vessel hit the rocks in heavy seas at Llanddulas, near Colwyn Bay, the investigation into what exactly happened is under way.
The operation to winch off seven crew from the MV Carrier involved a helicopter and lifeboats, and led to the closing of the areas main road, the A55.
The focus of attention has now turned to the saving of the ship and the thousands of gallons of fuel on board.
