Latest attempt to unblock Suez Canal failed

From Morning Report, 6:17 am on 26 March 2021

The latest attempt to free the giant cargo ship blocking the Suez Canal has failed.

Another attempt to refloat the ship will be made today, but in the mean time a backlog of tankers and cargo ships has formed and is growing by the hour.

Guy Platten is the Secretary-General of the International Chamber of Shipping.
