Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Surfers protest ship-scrapping in UK
Surfers protest about ghost ships
BBC News

Surfers who use a stretch of Teesside coastline are holding a protest
meeting over the so-called US 'ghost fleet'. 
Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) has warned the decision could have a
serious impact on recreational water-users in the area. 
A group of surfers plans to march on Able UK - which has won the
contract to dismantle the ships - on Friday morning. 
Nick Noble, from the Teesside branch of SAS, uses the stretch of
coastline at Saltburn. 
He said no amount of jobs could compensate for the potential dangers
ahead if things do go wrong.
