  • Description

    Three ferries have gone aground at South West Rocks, on the central coast of New South Wales, Australia. They were being towed from Sydney to the Philippines, when a storm forced them in for repairs to stop them taking water. As the storm continued, the ferries came adrift from buoys and floated onto the sand.

    Efforts to refloat the vessels have so far proved futile. Huge waves were reported to be breaking up the oil stores on the vessels on Friday (14 January) end seepage is worrying authorities.

    If the ferries cannot be refloated, the owners may decide to burn them where they lie, after salvaging valuable parts.
