A SHIP grounded off the coast could be stuck there until April unless it’s re-floated in the next few days.

The MV Cuidad de Cadiz, which takes wings made at Airbus’ Broughton plant to France, has been stranded at Salisbury Bank, Mostyn, for more than a week.

The vessel is currently marooned on top of cockle beds but Environment Agency Wales is unable to assess any potential damage until it has returned to the sea.

A spokeswoman for Lavers, who monitor the tides, said: “Monday is the highest tide for some time with the next coming in April.

“But it must be remembered that tides are also affected by the weather pressure. It’s not really possible to say how long it will be there for.”

A spokesman for Airbus said the company couldn’t “speculate on future outcomes” but admitted recent high tides had been lower than predicted.
