Hi All

My name is Faith and I am the secretary of the Bring The Royal Iris Back home Facebook group. First and Foremost let me thank those of you on this site that have joined the group and have I hope signed the petition.

My reason for starting this thread is that today I had some news from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. They have in fact been to visit the Royal Iris in Woolwich and have decided to hand her over to the HSE for further action. It appears that they are looking at impounding her.

Is there anyone on here who is able to explain and advise me on what steps need to be taken for this to happen. Also please let me know if there is anything I can do in relation to helping the Wirral Businessman save her from what could finally be the breakers yard.

Please email me at merseyqueen@hotmaill.com with your answers.
Thank you

Phill,
I've also signed.
I don't know if signing the petition will help save the Royal Iris, but at least giving it publicity on the SN site, should swell the number of signatures. (Standing at 3047 when I signed).

Ron.
