pounds 7.5m ferry in anchor hitch.

THE maiden voyage of Caledonian MacBrayne's new pounds 7.5million flagship had to be cancelled - because her anchor didn't work.

The Devon-built car ferry Coruisk is to sail between Mallaig and Armadale, Skye. There were naming services at both ports on Thursday.

But yesterday she was still tied up. A spokesman said she would sail within days.

Meanwhile, the RMT union is to ballot its 450 CalMac members on industrial action over pay, with a strike pencilled in for September 8.
