MSC Napoli Update: Help is on the way


BBC report on aid headed to the stricken ship:Crane barges sail to Napoli's aid.
Two specialist crane barges are sailing from Rotterdam in the Netherlands to join the operation to salvage the cargo of beached container ship MSC Napoli.

They will start lifting the remaining 2,394 containers off the ship, grounded off Sidmouth in east Devon, on Friday.

A team of 20 is working round the clock to pump oil from the ship - 200 tonnes have already leaked into the sea.

On Thursday the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said no oil had leaked overnight and no more containers had been lost.
