woodsie Cutty Sark fire: what happens now? (197* d) RE: BS: Cutty Sark ablaze (UK) 21 May 07

Here is a bit from the BBC:

"A fire which severely damaged the famous 19th Century ship Cutty Sark is being treated as suspicious by police.
The ship, which was undergoing a major restoration project, is kept in a dry dock at Greenwich in south-east London.

An area around the 138-year-old tea clipper had to be evacuated when the fire broke out in the early hours."

I am devestated. This was a vital part of Greenwich, a beautiful clipper. A meeting point for travellers and an icon - there is even a whisky named after it! Lets hope that they can fully restore it - I know they were short of funds as it was, let's hope there is some sort of insurance cover.
