#ShipGrounding – Car-transporter Hoegh Osaka was being held east of its grounding at Alpha Anchorage, between East Cowes and Lee-on-the-Solent, reports BBC News.
The cargo ship that has been stricken in the Solent since Saturday as previously reported on Afloat.ie, is being secured overnight after freeing itself from the sandbank.
Hoegh Osaka had run aground on Bramble Bank on Saturday.
It "refloated" itself unexpectedly just before 14:00 GMT due to the tide and water being pumped out of the ship.
The vessel was towed two miles east in the Solent and will be held by two tugs until Thursday for a full assessment by salvage company Svitzer.
