UK government extends coastguard tugs coverage

Postby Nick » Tue Dec 20, 2011 7:37 pm

ETV coverage for the Minch and Northern waters has been extended until March next year.

Beyond March, the oil and gas industry has offered to support the MCA by deploying its chartered vessels in emergencies off the Northern Isles, but that is obviously not a solution for the Minch.
