Ocean Drover on Fire
The Ocean Drover, with no sheep on board, is on fire in Fremantle Port. Burning for a few hours (at this stage). So, a temporary reprieve for 70,000 or so sheep (or 18,000 cattle) although questions have to be asked as to how they are going to be managed at the feedlot now that they are unlikely to be going anywhere soon.
Also spare a thought for the crew members who have been injured in the fire ... probably foreign workers far from home.

The Ocean Drover's next move will under tow to Singapore at a time to be determined for a major repair operation. The vessel will be out of service for sometime.
