Hibernia Segment C - Abandoned Gear

Hibernia Segment C - Abandoned Gear

Incident involving a fishing vessel snagging its gear. GMSL's understanding is the MCA advised the vessel (Siobhan 3) to slip it's gear due to the proximity of the Hibernia Segment C subsea cable

The position given was 53°50.340N:004°55.832W, south of the Isle of Man, although it cannot be confirmed if the gear was snagged on the cable.
