Lysblink Seaways to be scrapped in Scotland

London: The DFDS Seaways containership that ran aground off Scotland in February is to be scrapped after repairs were deemed too expensive.

The Lysblink Seayways (160 teu, built 2000) will be demolished at DRB Marine Services at Rosneath on the river Clyde, local newspaper reports say.

The singledecker has been in the Inchgreen Drydock at Greenock since early March.

It ran aground on February 18 while carrying a cargo of paper waste from Belfast to Skogn, Norway.
