Aquarius highly unlikely to come to Gib, GBC understands

The migrant rescue vessel, MV Aquarius is extremely unlikely to dock in Gibraltar, even though it is registered here, GBC understands. The Gibraltar Maritime Administration has served the owners with a notice of removal, and its registration will be terminated next week.

The vessel is carrying 141 migrants aboard, and questions about its destination have been raised in the international media, after Italy and Malta denied it entry. Spain is also reportedly unlikely to allow it to dock in its ports.
