Tug boat washes ashore

Choppy surf in the George Town harbour was blamed for causing a tug boat to wash up on the iron shore early Thursday. 

No one was on board the tug when it washed up right in front of Paradise Restaurant on South Church Street. 

Witnesses said the craft ‘Atlas’ had been anchored just off shore the previous evening. 

It was pulled off the shore and returned to the George Town Port for repairs by mid-morning Thursday.
