Tuscor Lloyds gets reel going

first_imgThe steel wire rope reel was picked up from the manufacturer’s facility in Newcastle and transported by road to the port of Felixstowe.Tuscor Lloyds said that it chose to ship the cargo from Felixstowe rather than Newcastle’s port of Tyne because it allowed for a reduced transit time and more direct route from the UK to South Korea.The cable reel was delivered to the quayside in Felixstowe, where two flatrack containers had already been lifted and loaded onto a container vessel.A heavy lift crane was then used to lift the cable reel onto the containers, which had been fitted with heavy dunnage spanning the complete width of the two flatracks in order to spread the weight and increase the friction.Securing was carried out by the port stevedores using wooden chocks, two-tonne webbing lashings on each corner and four-tonne webbing lashing on the arms of the reel, which ensured that the cargo would be safe for ocean transit to Busan.Once in Busan, the cable reel was unloaded from the vessel using onsite cranes fitted with specialist gear for heavy cargo, before being transferred onto low loader trucks and delivered to the port of Masan.From the port of Masan, the cargo was loaded onto another container vessel using two more flatracks and similar securing methods for shipment to the Philippine port of Manila.  www.tuscorlloyds.comlast_img read more

Liar series 2 starts Monday on ITV – preview episode 1

first_img Credit: Two Brothers Pictures / ITV Liar returns for a second series on ITV on Monday and it looks like Laura Nielson’s (Joanne Froggatt) nightmare is far from over.If you want to avoid spoilers for Liar, stop reading now.The first series saw Laura accuse Andrew Earlham (Ioan Gruffudd) of raping her after a date resulted in her not remembering anything that happened. As Laura tried to prove that she was telling the truth, Andrew continued to taunt her and added another victim to his ever-growing list after raping DI Vanessa Harmon (Shelley Conn).<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>In the final episode of the series Laura concocted a plan to make sure that a new rape conviction against Andrew would stick but her plans were thwarted when he escaped. Cornered by Laura and Vanessa, Andrew pointed out that if he were to be arrested, they would find GHB in his system and it’s Laura that would get put in prison for drugging him.They reluctantly let him go and as the series came to a close, we discovered that Andrew had gone missing. His lifeless body was shown, leaving a huge question mark over who killed him?Did he commit suicide? Could it have been Laura or Vanessa? Or was it Vanessa’s partner Jennifer Robertson (Jill Halfpenny).The synopsis for series 2 episode 1 is:Three weeks after his disappearance, Andrew’s body is found on the Kent marshes. His throat slit, it’s declared he was murdered. Laura meanwhile is trying to move on from her ordeal. She’s slowly growing in confidence in her new relationship with Ian and has returned to work.Yet her initial relief upon learning of Andrew’s death is cut short. As DI Renton (Katherine Kelly) and DS Maxwell (Danny Webb) seek to determine who killed him, Laura finds herself drawn into Andrew’s destructive path and once again must fight to be believed.Liar series 2 begins at 9pm Monday on ITV.

The beautiful game was back on Saturday — but certainly not as we know it

first_img People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 8 MOST DANGEROUS RAINS of All Time | TOP 10 INTERESTING DayZ Amazing Mods ~ More Cars, More Guns, More Gore! 10 INCREDIBLE Space Launch Failures! IT’S football — but certainly not as we know it. It’s Saturday, it’s 3pm and the beautiful game is back.Of a sort. Because this is the ghostly Bundesliga coverage from a eerie BT Sport studio.⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates200-odd people were permitted in the 81,000-capacity WestfalenstadionCredit: EPAAs an alternative to the blood and thunder of the Premier League, the Bundesliga is right up there with our very own League One footballCredit: ReutersThe TV channel trailed their live broadcast as a “thrilling five-way contest for top spot”. Which made it sound like a night round Kyle Walker’s gaff — but no matter.Starved of football, like millions of us, I sat on the sofa positively salivating. And the big news is that, post-lockdown, BT Sport host Jake Humphrey has lost his hair, grown a shaggy beard and is evidently sleeping rough in a tent.Except, it turns out it is stand-in host, James Richardson.In the studio, Raphael Honigstein (no, me neither) keeps a sensible distance while Owen Hargreaves joins from home, showing off his daring new accessory — a quite magnificent door handle protruding from his right ear.As an alternative to the blood and thunder of the Premier League, the Bundesliga is right up there with our very own League One football.But right now, given it is the only live football in town, I’ve got a large stein of Beck’s in hand, a bowl of authentic Huober Pretzels (amazing what you can still get in Lidl) and I’m excited as a kid on Christmas Eve.The afternoon is all about the Ruhr derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke. With 200-odd people in the 81,000-capacity Westfalenstadion, there is more atmosphere at one of Matt Hancock’s Downing Street press conferences. But then, who cares?In truth, the game itself has all the intensity of a leisure centre training session.Half an hour in and I still have not got used to the empty seats and a wall of silence. But proceedings are momentarily enlivened when Dortmund open the scoring through Erling Haaland.But with no one to hug, we’re treated to the sight of a grown man forced to make his own entertainment with a corner flag.A feeling Kyle Walker knows only too well. Probably.Post-Covid-19 football is officially back. No fans, no atmosphere, no goal celebrations. Bolton fans will feel right at home.CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – STAY IN THE KNOWDon’t miss the latest news and figures – and essential advice for you and your family.To receive The Sun’s Coronavirus newsletter in your inbox every tea time, sign up here.To follow us on Facebook, simply ‘Like’ our Coronavirus page.Get Britain’s best-selling newspaper delivered to your smartphone or tablet each day – find out more.BBC in line to air first Premier League match ever amid plans to show games on TV for free Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heelscenter_img Source: Soccer – What’s This “Trick” Called?
