As Manx Radio reports, the incident took occurred in the early hours of 26 August.

The cargo ship CEG Orbit was successfully re-floated, on the second attempt, at 2am the following day.

Director of the Isle of Man Ship Registry Cameron Mitchell has told Manx Radio the investigation is being carried out on behalf of the Latvian authorities.

That's due to the ship sailing under the Latvian flag.

The CEG Orbit was removed from the beach by two tugs the Wendy Ann, of the Laxey Towing Company, and the CT Vector from Liverpool.

After being refloated the ship made her way to Douglas where she was checked for damage.
