Harbour dredging claim refuted

More known once full dive report released

Dredging needs had nothing to do with the Ben-my-Chree crash, if it was unsafe, the master wouldn't have chosen to dock.

That's the insistence of director of Ports Ann Reynolds - answers will come once the investigatory report by expert divers is released.

That'll determine if damage to both the Ben and the King Edward Pier is superficial - as expected - or structural.

Ms Reynolds says it didn't happen because the harbour is in desperate need of dredging, or because the large fender destroyed years earlier is yet to be replaced.

She told us what DID happen
