No shoes, no shirt, no problem.
is that ship in the background falling off the side of the world?
It's the New Flame.Leaving Algeciras port without permission in the early hours of Sunday 12th August, the Panamanian flagged "New Flame" collided with another ship, a Danish petrol tanker "Torm Gertrude" (other reports have incorrectly identified it, with no pun intended, as "Torn Gertrude"). The double hulled tanker made it into Algeciras port with its cargo intact.Heavily damaged and believed to be holed amidships the New Flame has partially sunk having hit a reef known locally as “Los Picos” (The Peaks) at a depth of 23 metres. Its cargo is scrap metal but the most worrying cargo, its full fuel tanks, have been emptied safely.After the crew were rescued, the Captain was arrested but later released on bail and allowed to return to his home in Greece pending a full investigation into the circumstances of the accident.
