The 80 meter long, 1805 dwt freighter Danio went aground near Farne Island, United Kingdom. The Danio was headed to Antwerp from Perth with a cargo of timber when it ran up onto the rocks. The Seahouses RNLI lifeboat responded to the scene and found the Danio had suffered a one meter gash in the bow. No reports of injuries or pollution released. Attempts to refloat the vessel by a tug on the next high tide failed. A Coastguard team has a pollution control team at the site to monitor the situation. Reports state the Danio may remain aground for several weeks until the tidal conditions are right.
