Friday night saw torrential rain and violent winds.
But we slept safely in our beds while rescue services from Spain and Gibraltar saved the 31 strong crew from the 35,000 ton cargo ship, MV Fedra, which ran aground at Europa Point in the severe gale (sources report between Force 8 and Force 12).
The ship is Liberian registered and owned by a Greek shipping company.
Excellent work by the rescue services and apparently the crew have been released from hospital to a local hotel.
So, I thought it was time for a wander up to look. As did the rest of Gib and the south of Spain.
Police were positioned at the entrance to Europa Point, and cars and pedestrians were not allowed to enter.
Still, I finally managed to get some pix. I should add that I did not cross any police tape, or go anywhere that was closed off.
I guess I got more pix than most people who went up there today – and were turned back.
