Police were called to the Port of Southampton in the UK after reports of a group of stowaways having come off a vessel in port and trying to make their way out of the port.
The latest incident began on October 28 after the car carrier Salome, operated by Wallenius Wilhelmsen, docked in the port of Southampton. The 43,800 dwt vessel arrived at around 7:30 am and commenced its operations. At midday, a group of 11 people was seen near one of the port’s gates trying to make their way into the city. The police were called and detained the group.
The police confirmed that it was a group of 11 people from Albania.
At a length of 870 feet and able to carry 6,000 vehicles, the Salome provided ample space for the stowaways to hide. It is unclear, however, where the stowaways came aboard. AIS data reports that the Salome was on a voyage from the US ports of Brunswick and Savannah, Georgia; Norfolk, Virginia; Baltimore, Maryland; and New York then crossing the Atlantic to Belgium, Germany, and France, before the call in Southampton.
The discovery of these stowaways is creating attention in the UK as it comes just days after another group of stowaways engaged in a confrontation with the crew of the 75,000 dwt tanker Nave Andromeda off the coast of the Isle of Wight. That resulted in a widely reported incident when a 16-member Special Boat Service boarding team boarded the vessel detaining the suspects.
