The 3820 dwt freighter Beaumont went aground in the Bay of Biscay near Aviles, Spain. The Beaumont was approaching the port when it went aground onto the rocks. No reports of injuries to the six crew on board or pollution released. The vessel suffered some damage to a ballast tank. The crew contacted authorities who dispatched a tug to assist in refloating the vessel. The tug was successful with the Beaumont being refloated later the same day during high tide. The Beaumont was towed into Aviles where it docked for repairs. The authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.
