Ship salvage operation underway along the Kwazulu Natal Coast

A complex salvage operation is under-way on the ship which ran aground at Sheffield Beach on Kwazulu Natal's North Coast. Newswatch captured some of the action.

The Phoenix was on its way to a scrap yard in India, when its anchor line broke on Monday night, causing it to drift off-course.

Maritime officials have since been working to remove the fuel from the ship.
