Severn Seas to call in to BIDEFORD.

Work vessel mv SEVERN SEAS (35m ) will call into BIDEFORD HARBOUR on Sunday pm tide (HW 1912hrs) to land her BBC passengers (Including Ben Fogle) who have been filming the dead whale that was towed out from YELLAND QUAY the week before last to the IRISH SEA.

The owners, Keenvor Morlift, will take on water after landing her personnel and equipment and return to sea for her next job.

The vessel was previously moored for some years at BIDEFORD before being converted and upgraded to her present role and has worked in the North of Scotland on water turbine testing for ROLLS ROYCE for several years.

Her skipper is Anthony Glover previously of Severn Seas shipping.
