thats not my understanding of the process. you would be required to deliver the wreck to the reciever (if so requested) and she would then decide what salvage (if any) you were entitled to.

As I understand it the reciever (or her agents) is entitled to require that wreck is delivered to or handed over to her or her agents including using force to achieve that. She has apppointed the local police as her agents. therefore they may be able to prevent you from removing wreck from beaches etc.

Wrongfully carrying away wreck is an offence (which I think is different from the offence of conceeling (failing to declare) wreck). Likewise hindering or impeding the recovery of wreck is an offence - presumably that includes an individual taking it on themselves to recover wreck where a salvor has been contracted.

those wishing to get a more definitive statement of the law than cod's

I just wish they would do as much to prevent people leaving their rubbish on the beaches .

Pick up a piece of driftwood and they threaten to nail you .

Leave a bag of rubbish dirty nappies and dog turds etc on the beach and nothing is done .

I love this country

There were no prosecutions over the removing of the cargo of the Napoli

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.../napoli126.xml

"At present, we do not have any plans for prosecutions in relation to Napoli recoveries."

Then again who knows with this government.............
