7 rescued from cargo ship as storms lash Britain

Much of Britain has gone from summery sunshine to wintry storms in the course of a few days.



London: Rescuers have winched seven crew
members from a cargo ship that ran aground on the coast of
north Wales, as snow and heavy winds lashed many parts of
Britain.

The Antigua-registered ship Carrier hit rocks near Colwyn
Bay in gale-force winds yesterday.

Two Royal Air Force rescue helicopters managed to lift
the seven Polish crew members to safety.

The Maritime and Coast Guard agency says the 82-metre
vessel is in one piece, and experts are working today to
refloat it.

Much of Britain has gone from summery sunshine to wintry
storms in the course of a few days.

Parts of Scotland and northern England have received 20
centimetres of snow, and 10,000 homes are without power in
northeast England after wind brought down power cables.
