Turkish freighter suffered cargo shift, heavy list in Strait of Dover

General cargo ship FG LEVENT suffered timber cargo shift, developed heavy list and went NUC in the afternoon Dec 15 in Strait of Dover, while en route from Antwerp to Algeria. The ship reportedly, was taken on tow by French SAR tug and towed to Anchorage north of Calais, new port of destination Dunkirk, so most probably, she’s in need of cargo fix with port facilities.
