MCA STATEMENT: 'GHOST' SHIP

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has received no sightings of the former Soviet cruise ship 'Lyubov Orlova' since April last year and there is no evidence to suggest it is still afloat.

Any 'ghost' ship entering European waters is highly likely to be reported due to the large number of vessels passing through the area. We would then act accordingly.
