Riverdance Crest Of The Waves Again?


LONDON (Reuters) – Passengers and non-essential crew were airlifted off a ferry that had been at risk of capsizing in the Irish Sea during a storm on Thursday and later ran aground, coastguards said.
The Riverdance was hit by a freak wave 8 miles off the northwestern coast of England on Thursday evening and its cargo shifted in high winds.
Coastguards said the ship, a roll-on-roll-off cargo and passenger vessel operated by Seatruck Ferries, ran aground next to the seaside resort of Blackpool shortly before midnight.
“It is basically on Blackpool beach now,” a coastguard spokeswoman said. “There are now just seven essential crew left on board. Everyone else has been taken to safety.”
