Bid to dismantle historic clipper





One of Britain's most historic ships could be dismantled because too much money is needed to restore it. The 140-year-old clipper, The Carrick, has been rotting away on the quayside at the Scottish Maritime Museum in Irvine, Ayrshire, for 15 years.

Along with the Cutty Sark, it is one of the last clippers in the world but at least £10m is needed to repair it.
