Dramatic pictures show a £1 million trawler left high and dry when it washed up on the Cornish coast today (September 5). The Cornish registered fishing Vessel, Le Men Du, was found this morning on the coast at Greenaway near Padstow. The fishing boat, which is 15 metres long and 6 metres wide, had been trawling in the Bristol Channel off the north Cornwall coast all day yesterday. Its current position at Greenaway was registered by Marine Traffic, a website showing live vessel positions, at about 6am. It is hoped that the boat will re-float on tonight’s rising tide. click here to read the story 12:28
