Timber ship sinks in rough seas

A stricken cargo ship has sunk in rough weather a day after its crew was rescued during an earlier storm.

The Greek-registered Ice Prince went down about 26 miles (42km) off Portland Bill, Dorset, after shedding more than 2,000 tonnes of its timber cargo.

Twelve crew were airlifted to Dorset and eight taken by lifeboat to Devon.

As a direct result of this we have been advised by our timber suppliers there may be slight delays in the coming weeks ahead.  Please note we already hold large supplies of timber for our products (Chesterfield Sofa, Fabric Sofa, Leather Sofa, Chesterfield Wing Chairs, Tub ChairsDining Tables and Beds)
