KIELDER upriver

This afternoon, following the reopening of the River Clyde after the body of the third member of FLYING PHANTOM's crew was recovered from the sunken tug, two ships were permitted to sail to Glasgow. ALSERBACH was first, followed an hour later by KIELDER. The latter ship is seen passing the BAE Systems yard at Scotstoun late this afternoon, as she made her way slowly upriver towards Shieldhall, and her berth in King George V Dock. KIELDER was noted with her Red Ensign flying at half-mast as a mark of respect to the victims of the accident.

Two very poignant reports concerning the tragedy appeared in 'The Scotsman'. They can be found here and here.
