31-01-11 That Sinking Feeling
Mystery surrounds the sinking of a musselfarm workboat in Kinlochbervie overnight.

The workboat, which is used to service mussel farms in Loch Inchard and Loch Laxford, was known to be afloat at teatime on Sunday but at sometime during the night began sinking and now lies with its stern on the bottom.

Harbour staff immediately put into place a floating boom to limit the risk of pollution from the vessel's fuel tanks and other machinery.
