TS Kellington, River Tees
TS Kellington, River Tees
The Training Ship Kellington is a former minesweeper which was sold by the Navy to the local branch of the sea cadets in 1996 for 2,000 and has been permanently moored here on the Tees. The cadets must have thought they had a bargain. But caveat emptor, the ship has now been condemned as unsafe and is in real danger of sinking. Scrapping it will cost about 250,000 rising to 500,000 if it does sink. But nobody wants to pay for it. The cadets can't afford the amount involved and the MOD are denying responsibility.
