photos of what they did

They just cut the bugger off after grinding the bolts off, then took the steering, throttle and other gear. Scum.

It not completely, the Ore Terminal and Power Station are staying open, not sure what else is?
Tees Pilots also need access so I wouldn't worry too much.

The Gares a strange place sometimes, the fishermen take rifles to shoot the seals, soft gits struggle to tell the difference between seals and divers though!
