Maybe old news but this was written on a internet site due to the collision.
The 1,560 TEU boxship "Sierra Express" has been involved in a collision with a general cargo ship in the English Channel. The UK's Marine Coastguard Agency informed that 2 ships made contact within French territorial waters about 45 miles south east of Lizard Point.
Casualty reports said the Sierra Express initially had rudder problems and was not under command. But this has now apparently been fixed. The boxship is now heading towards the UK port of Falmouth, but is reported to have a 5 meter crack in its hull two meters above the waterline.
The Greek-flagged ship, with a crew of 30, was en route from Rotterdam to the French port of Le Havre when the collision took place.
The 1,092-gt "Dogger", which was carrying 1 thousand tons of fish meal, was also said to be en route to Falmouth escorted by the local lifeboat.
There was no pollution reported from either vessel and there were no reported crew injuries.
