A cargo ship which ran aground off the Cumbrian coast on Saturday is now safely moored at the port of Silloth. 

The Zapadnyy ran aground on Saturday having travelled over from Germany. 

The ship was refloated during the midnight hightide and no injuries were reported. 

This is the second time that the ship has run aground in Silloth after also coming into difficulties in 2016

An Associated British Ports spokesperson said: "We can confirm that the vessel Zapadnyy ran aground during Saturday's midday tide.

"There are no injuries reported. The vessel was successfully refloated and returned to port.

"It is now alongside at the Port of Silloth and ABP staff are undertaking assessments of any impact."
