At around 1500 UTC on Jul 1, General cargo ship BBC LISBON suffered steering failure and ran onto shore in Tromso. This incident apparently took place due to shifting berths. The ship was set afloat again about an hour later with tug assistance, and was safely accommodated at Breivika. BBC LISBON reached Tromso on Jun 28 from Poland. No reports on damages, she is to be probed by ship captains.
