Run aground cargo ship off Margate coast resumes journey
A cargo vessel carrying broken glass has been refloated after it ran aground off the Kent coast.
The 75-metre Islay Trader became stuck near Margate Harbour about 30m (98ft) from shore shortly after 03:00 BST.
It was just a few feet away from the Antony Gormley sculpture, in front of the Turner Contemporary gallery.
It was towed from the sea bed with the assistance of a tug 12 hours later, and is now planning to continue its journey to Antwerp, in Belgium.
A coastguard spokeswoman said the fuel tanks had not been damaged.
The six crew remained on board throughout the rescue operation.
