Ghost Fleet

British company, Able UK Limited, has completed a deal with the Bush administration to bring dilapidated ex-US navy vessels to the UK for disposal.

Some of these ships are more than 40 years old and contain large amounts of highly toxic chemicals – such as PCBs and asbestos.

Friends of the Earth has already won an injunction to stop the break up of these ships pending further legal challenges.

But a number of them are already on their way – and will be in UK waters in a matter of days.

The UK Environment Agency has the power to turn them back – but we need your help to persuade them to do so.

For more infomation and to take action please go to: and ask the Environment Agency to stop the US Ghost fleet.
