Reported in todays Press and Journal that her anchor chains broke and she drifted ashore near Stornoway. All 6 crew safe but no more info than that. Can't find it anywhere else online anyone know any more ??

Stornoway Lifeboat towed the Our Hazel off the rocks near Tolsta, which is about 15 miles north of Stornoway. Think the divers had a check in SY then she's away back out again. Heard earlier she dragged the anchor but I'm sure by the end of the day there'll be all sorts of claims by arm chair theorists!

I could only go on what was in the Press & Journal and what the BBC reported but breaking anchor chain isn't really something i'd expect , dragging the pick yes happens but if she's away back out then no real damage done thankfully
