The MV Danio, which was stranded on the Farne Islands for 13 days, was salvaged on the high tide in the early hours this morning.

Attempts had been delayed initially due to the unsuitable tides and then due to the weather and swell conditions at the start of this week.

But the islands’ head ranger, David Steel, revealed the successful salvage this morning on Twitter.

In a series of tweets, he said: “It’s great news and huge relief for the Farne Islands. Well done to all concerned. The Danio is off the Farne Islands safely.

“The tow ropes have now been sorted and the MV Danio is now on her way south, being pulled by the power tug Lomax.

“Well done to the salvage team, a huge success tonight on the Farne Islands, the Danio has been pulled clear.

“It has been confirmed there was no leakage or spillage during the successful removal of the MV Danio in the small hours.”
