Stranded tanker now in Sydney Harbour

The tanker that ran aground off the coast of Little Pond in Cape Breton is now secured at a dock in Sydney Harbour.

The Coast Guard says it took more than 100 people, several government agencies, harbour authorities, a salvage company and resources from across the Atlantic region to finally free the 53-metre vessel yesterday.  It less time than expected for two tugs to hail the tanker off the sandy bottom where it had been stuck for a week.  The Coast Guard says there was no indication of any pollution or fuel leaking from its tanks.
