A CARGO ship will be towed to Inchgreen, Greenock for repairs after running aground in the north west Highlands.

The Lysblink Seaways vessel ran aground near Ardnamurchan Point last month. It was refloated and taken to Scallastle Bay in the Sound of Mull.

The 394ft-long ship was carrying paper from Belfast to Norway before running into difficulty at Kilchoan, according to the BBC.

Coastguard officials said the work to prepare the vessel for its towing will begin tomorrow.
