The timber that was lost when from Russian flagged Sinegorsk encountered rough seas earlier this week began to wash ashore along the Kent coast. Below is a slideshow provided by the Guardian. (Click image for pop-up window)


Of course, local authorities are warning the public that it is illegal to scavenge the lost cargo.  The photos remind us of two other incidents in recent times. Check out those Flickr slideshows below and you’ll see the similarities.

1. The MSC Napoli

2. The Ice Prince that ironically shed nearly 2,000 tons of wood cargo off of Portland Bill, Dorset, UK just over one year ago
