Grounded cargo ship cannot be saved

The grounded Safmarine Agulhas is an unsalvageable wreck and the rest of its cargo cannot be removed, the National Port Authority (NPA) said on Saturday.

“It’s now referred to as a wreck… It can’t be refloated,” said NPA East London spokesperson Terry Taylor.

He said it was too dangerous for salvors to remove the remaining 90 containers from the flooded holds.
