Cargo ship carrying 1200 Jaguars goes aground

The ship sailed from the port of Southampton, and just 45 minutes after departure, it had some damage, so the captain deliberately stranded ship in Bramble Bank, known marine barrier, so as not to sink.

The ship with the Singapore flag, has a displacement of 57,000 tons and a length of 180 meters and fortunately none of the crew was seriously injured, the authorities say they will take several days to remove the boat from the sand and check if it was badly damaged.

The authorities tried to tow the ship with tugs, but the attempt failed, and so the Coast Guard expects favorable tides, to tow it. Cars of the ship are calculated that would cost more than £35 million.
