MV Freja is continuing to search the interior of the wreck of L’Ecume II and the surrounding seabed. Fast-moving currents and a temporary technical problem with one of the underwater robots caused some delay and the work is now expected to be completed by tomorrow. We are still actively searching for the third missing fisherman.

During the search over the past week, the robot recovered some of the crew’s personal items. These will be passed on to the families when the investigations are complete.

The existing exclusion zone remains in place for safety reasons, and the two parallel investigations into the collision are continuing.
