WORK TO RESUME ON CHANNEL WRECK

Work is due to resume o­n clearing the wreck of a car-carrying vessel that sank just off the coast of Kent in December 2002.

<FONT color=black>Four remaining sections of the huge car carrier had to stay in the sea for another six months after the Dutch salvage team were hampered in the final stages of the salvage operation o­n the 50,000-tonne Tricolor last year.

<FONT color=black>The ship sank in the English Channel after it was in collision with a container vessel.

All the crew were rescued but the cargo of 3,000 luxury cars was lost.
