A boat is to be removed after it sank in Flatts Inlet a month ago.

A member of the public said the submerged vessel was also leaking diesel.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Environment and Natural Resources said officials had contacted the boat’s owner.

She added a private contractor had tried to refloat the boat, but salvage equipment had broken down.

The spokeswoman said: “New flotations are in transit for deployment.”

She said the department had asked for the fuel leak to be contained until the boat could be brought to the surface.
