Final disposal of the forward section of the container ship MSC Napoli is still being considered.

Final disposal of the forward section of the container ship MSC Napoli is still being considered. It was separated from the aft section of the vessel by explosives last Friday, and authorities say that it is likely to be towed to a commercial port for recycling.

A contract to remove the stern section from Lyme Bay is being tendered, and the feasibility of permanent booming is being considered as part of this operation.
