The coaster ANITA was seen passing Lunderston Bay on Saturday afternoon, outbound for Seville with scrap metal. The elderly coaster - she was built in 1975 as JUNIOR LOTTE for Danish owners - had arrived at Glasgow a few days earlier with a cargo of road salt from Kilroot. ANITA, which has carried the name since 1995, has a deadweight of 3,739 tonnes and and overall length of 93.0 metres. She is registered in the Cook Islands and is now owned by a Norwegian firm.
