Teesside could miss out on scrappage work due to political pressure

Able UK bosses say work to could go to Italy due to ‘political pressure’ for the job to be carried out in the stricken cruise liner’s home country.

The wreck of the Costa Concordia could be dismantled in Italy instead of Teesside due to political pressure, Able UK bosses have claimed.

They say the Billingham-based company is one of two frontrunners for the work to scrap the vessel, which sank almost two years ago near an Italian island, killing 32 people.

Its rival – an Italian company – could win the contract due to political pressure for the work to be carried out in the stricken cruise liner’s home country.
