Any comment from the MoD on the return of the Corran Ferry unaided by them?

This morning, BBC Scotland tell us that the Corran Ferry will be back in service ‘shortly.’

What happened to the suggestions of MoD assistance, six weeks ago?

Three weeks ago, we read from BBC Scotland:

An assessment is ongoing over whether military help is the solution for Highland Council’s Corran Ferry.

There has not been a car ferry on the five-minute crossing of Loch Linnhe in Lochaber for three weeks due to issues with the main vessel and a relief boat.

It is the busiest single-vessel ferry route in Scotland and carries more than 270,000 cars each year.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has agreed to look at what assistance it might be able to offer.

A military team has visited the area, but Highland Council said discussions with the MoD remained ongoing.

The MoD declined to comment.

That last sentence speaks volumes.

This is just another PR stunt and, anyhow would RN be safe at the wheel? Remember these?

Two army drivers crash ambulances within 48 hours of being brought in to help with crisis

Just another Unionist stunt.
