The 40 year old liner the Lyubov Orlova has been missing at sea for almost a year. But now experts believe strong storms in The Atlantic Ocean are blowing it towards the British coast.
Marine searchers say the ship is empty of people but will be full of thousands of disease infested rodents with, by now, no food source except each other.
Belgian-based marine salvager Pim de Rhoodes says:
“She is floating around there somewhere. There will be a lot of rats and they eat each other. If I get aboard I’ll have to lace everywhere with poison.”
In 2012 she was being towed to the Dominican Republic to be scrapped when she broke free and was abandoned. Ever since then she has been floating somewhere in the Atlantic. Last year she was spotted two thirds of the way across the ocean and now because of recent storms she could be very close to the UK shoreline.
It is estimated the ship’s scrap value could be almost a $1 million.
