Diligence is back in Cammell Lairds undergoing another refit, and it was reported in local press on Monday that there had been a serious fire in a compartment next to the engine room.
Ten fire engines attended and the fire took almost four hours to extinguish. The fire was apparently caused by a spark from oxy-acetylene equipment being used in the purifier room. There were no casualties. This major refit of Diligence apparently includes new engines.
