A stricken cargo ship is heading towards the French coast but there are hopes it can be towed to safety before it runs aground. The Panamanian-registered Modern Express began listing last Tuesday and all 22 crew members were airlifted off the vessel after a distress call. Efforts to tow it have failed but another attempt will be made on Monday. If it fails, the ship will strike France’s south-west coast between Monday night and Tuesday morning. The ship, which is carrying 3,600 tonnes of timber and digging machines, is now listing at an angle of between 40 and 50 degrees.
