THE SPANISH owned long-liner Coelleira remains aground on the Vee Skerries, with the owners and insurers “attempting to recover debris and oil” from the vessel.

According to a Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokeswoman weather conditions to date “have prevented any access to the island or the vessel”.

She added that the Lerwick based Constructor has assumed guard duties and is standing by awaiting a suitable weather window to attempt the recovery of the debris and oil.

The owners and insurers are also said to be “continuing to work on plans to remove the wreck.”

The spokeswoman said that there have been no reports of recent pollution.

She added that the  Secretary of State’s Representative (SOSREP) continued to monitor the situation.
