Dundee port chiefs say an offshore support vessel which has been positioned in the middle of the River Tay for almost 24 hours is not in any trouble — and is in fact a sign of booming business at the city’s port.
The Belgian-registered tug Union Lynx has been stationary a mile east of the road bridge since shortly after 4pm on Monday.
A spokeswoman for Forth Ports, which owns and operates the Port of Dundee, confirmed the 75m vessel is in full working order.
The spokeswoman said: “The vessel is out at an anchor point because it is so busy in Dundee.
“Holding it there frees up berth space for other vessels.”
