  • Description

    THE 61,276 TON TANKER, LAKE PALOURDE, SISTER SHIP OF THE ILL-FATED TORREY CANYON, HAS BEEN ARRESTED IN SINGAPORE. THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IS CLAIMING DAMAGES AGAINST THE OWNERS OF THE TORREY CANYON FOR DAMAGE SUSTAINED WHEN SHE RAN AGROUND OFF THE COAST CORNWALL EARLIER THIS YEAR.

    THE OWNERS HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY POST GBP3 MILLION POUNDS BAIL TO FREE THE VESSEL.

    THE SINGAPORE ARREST FOLLOWS THE ISSUE OF A WRIT BY BRITAIN'S TREASURY SOLICITOR IN MAY. THIS WAS FIRST STEP IN THE GOVERNMENT ACTION TO RECOVER THE COST OF CLEANING UP OIL POLLUTION FROM THE WRECK OF THE TORREY CANYON.

    THE OIL POLLUTED VAST STRETCHES OF SAND ALONG BRITAIN'S HOLIDAY BEACHES.

    THE LAKE PALOURDE ENTERED SINGAPORE WATERS ON SATURDAY NIGHT (15 JULY) AFTER A DIRECT RUN FROM LOS ANGELES. SHE WAS BOUND FOR THE PERSIAN GULF.

    THE 36-MAN CREW OF THE TANKER ARE BEING ALLOWED TO GO ASHORE IN SINGAPORE. THEY ARE ALL ITALIANS.
