Scrapping of ghost ships may go ahead

Hartlepool Council's Planning Committee has decided not to challenge the appeals by Able UK over its plans to dismantle ships and other associated work at its Graythorp site.

Councillor Rob Cook, who chairs the Council's Planning Committee, said that new Government planning policy published in February 2007 was one of the main reasons behind the Committee's decision.

Able UK Chairman Peter Stephenson says ”Although the Council has no objections to the scheme, Able still does not have planning permission. We are exploring whether the Council will now grant permission so as to remove the uncertainties as quickly as possible”.

Friday 15 June 2007

Friday 15 June 2007 was the wettest day in South Yorkshire for nearly 35 years when a month's worth of rain fell in just six hours.

The torrential rain caused the transport system to grind to a halt as many roads and some railway lines were submerged under flood water.

See the images below and follow the links to view more than 200 pictures of the day.

The railway looks more like a canal than a railway line.
