Seems someone forgot to measure the ship before they took on the job! The lightship was towed all the way to Southampton to be hauled onto a slipway for some work, but it turned out to be too big and wouldn't fit, hence it was brought back so quickly. Understandably the marina aren't very happy with the company that agreed to do the work!

PS. It's still closed.
