Early on Tuesday morning, the British-flagged coaster CELTIC FORESTER was seen arriving from Ellesmere Port as she passed McInroy's Point. The 3,600 tonne deadweight ship, built in 1985 as SPICA was renamed ANITA B in 1994, JORK in 2001 and five years later, joined the Cardiff based Wliie Group and renamed CELTIC FORESTER. She is a product of the Sietas shipyard at Neuenfelde in Germany and is 87.99 metres in length. She was heading for King George V Dock to load a cargo for Antwerp.
