Apparently, she is due to leave today to be scrapped. A group of people are trying to organise a protest by refusing to move from the Four Bridges thus un-enabling the bridge to lift, for the ship to pass.

Waste of time protesting unless you've got the dosh to save the poor old girl. Sad end to a fighting vessel but it's always the way.

Just to let you know, AIS is showing that the tug Amber II must still be towing HMS Plymouth and is about 40 miles away but level with Penzance,now doing 6knots, I presume her course is across the Bay of Biscay, keeping away from other shipping.

Thanks for the ongoing info. Dave. I've been following her progress on the AIS site - a great absorber of time. It looks like she's giving Bishop Rock LH a wide berth!

AIS is out of range since 11:30 ish.

this link is to her AIS page, so if the tug comes back online, it will point to her on the map.

Notice the arrival in Turkey date.

Amber II tug with HMS Plymouth has traversed the Bay of Biscay and is about 80 miles away nearly level with the top end of the Spanish coast, her AIS is back on line.
