Lost containers recovered from Wangerooge beach
On Jan 7 the recovery of five containers lost by the "Thetis D" from the beach of Wangerooge which had started on Jan 6 was to be completed. The planks which had been swept across the beach had to be collected. The driftwood as well as the debris of the containers was loaded onto the salvage ship "Störtebeker" and was due to be taken to Norddeich port on Jan 8. Then it was to proceed to Spiekeroog, where four containers grounded, or Norderney and Langeoog to recover the other grounded containers.
