STOP PRESS: Cutty Sark destroyed by fire
The Cutty Sark - 'world's last tea clipper', and significant landmark on the London Marathon route - has, this morning, been devastated by fire. A report on BBC Breakfast News just a few moments ago has confirmed that around 50% of the ship, plus the artefacts previously on show, had all been removed for the restoration project, but 80% of what was left has been destroyed. The Cutty Sark Trust are confident that they will be able to restore the ship. The fire is thought to have been started deliberately.
