That's quite a list on her, wonder how much of the cargo will have shifted - will possibly make re-floating a substantial challenge.

Interesting AIS track, she appeared to do a U turn

All crew safe, one suffered broken leg. Apparently the ship has listed more in the early hours, I reckon its going to tip if all those cars have shifted when tide comes in, what a mess, ferry delays and no large ships can enter or exit at the moment.

One newspaper quoteing navigation system failure and another quoting mechanical failure, maybe autopilot went wrong, very strange type of failure, I would have thought in this area the large ships woulnt be on autopilot and would be manually manovered with a pilot on board. Will be interesting to hear what happenned, at least crew ok.
