Sunk boat off Flatts to be removed
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.
