Warship Sinking Delayed

Date: 4/6/2010

The sinking of decommissioned RAN Frigate HMAS Adelaide was delayed by legal actions taken on behalf of a vocal local protest group centred on Avoca Beach on the NSW Central Coast (Australia) where, 1.7 km offshore, Adelaide was to become a dive wreck. All explosive charges have been removed from the vessel. Protesters cite the supposed presence of PCBs on the ship but also stated they would be happy to see it sunk one beach north at Terrigal.
