#BelfastLough - A cargo ship that's been at anchor at the mouth of Belfast Lough for weeks may be allowed to dock at the harbour in the coming days, as the Belfast Telegraph reports.

The grain transporter Voge Fantasy was refused permission to enter Belfast Harbour due to concerns that the methods used to extinguish a fire in its hold four weeks ago produced toxic gases that could reignite the fire if opened.

Today (13 June) a final check on the affected parts of the vessel are being carried out, and if given the all clear she will be allowed to dock and unload her damaged cargo.

The Belfast Telegraph has more on the story HERE.
