Lyubov Orlova: Ghost Ship Carrying Cannibal Rats ‘Could Be Heading For Britain’
A ghost ship carrying nothing but disease-ridden rats could be about to make land on Britain’s shore, experts have warned.
The Lyubov Orlova cruise liner has been drifting across the north Atlantic for the better part of a year, and salvage hunters say there is a strong chance it is heading this way.
Built in Yugoslavia in 1976, the unlucky vessel was abandoned in a Canadian harbour after its owners were embroiled in a debt scandal and failed to pay the crew.
Experts say the ship, which is likely to still contain hundreds of rats that have been eating each other to survive, must still be out there somewhere because not all of its lifeboat emergency beacons have been set off.
