THE Canal & River Trust has announced that it has received a credible offer for Planet Light Ship from someone who will restore her and then make her available for sale.
The Trust has accepted this offer and is now progressing the sale.
Chantelle Seaborn, waterway manager at the Canal & River Trust, comments: “We’re pleased that we’ve received interest in Planet and that she will be renovated.
“Whilst we’ve not had any interest from someone in Liverpool wanting to buy and return Planet to the city, hopefully there may be interest when the boat has been restored. The most important outcome is that she has a viable future.”
