I remain very concerned about the future of lightship Planet and have made strong representations to the Canal and River Trust. These are ongoing.
Planet was included as a waterfront attraction in the original proposals for the renovation of the Albert Dock complex in the early 1980s. It was the last manned working UK lightship when she was retired from Trinity House in 1991.
Putting the ship up for sale endangers its future. It must not be sold for scrap.
Its home is in Liverpool!
