Default Russian ship at risk of sinking in the Solent

This webcam is at Ryde on the Isle of Wight. When it pans to the left you can see the ship, with a tug and liefboat in support. Papers say crew have been taken off the ship. I think the camera is vulnerable to the wind!

Southern news tonight at 6.45pm confirmed Tinkers report that the crew are still on board. One problem they have now is that deck cargo has started to fall into the sea.
