A Turkish vessel carrying 3,000mt of wheat from the French port of Marseille bound for Livorno in Italy has sank overnight.
The Gunay 2's ten man crew all managed to escape unharmed.
That's one way of getting rid of your unwanted surplus I suppose.
On second thoughts, what a brilliant idea! Lets dump, sorry load, 3 million tonnes of wheat bound for Italy and scuttle the lot in the Med. Where there's blame there's a claim. Sorted.
