Debris ‘from MSC Napoli’ washes up on beaches
Sidmouth Lifeboat recovers part of container
STORMY weather could have washed debris from the MSC Napoli aground at local beaches.
Items that resemble cargo from the huge ship have been spotted nearly five years after the vessel was beached off Branscombe.
The Herald can reveal Sidmouth Lifeboat this afternoon towed what is believed to be part of a container, possibly a door, ashore.
Crew from the independent service were tasked to a stretch of coast between Beer Head and Branscombe at around 3pm today (Tuesday, October 25).
