              The blamestorming has started

              https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...uez-Canal.html

              Indian crew of the Ever Given face ARREST as Egyptian authorities probe crash that blocked the Suez Canal for a week – amid fears they will be made 'scapegoats' for the chaos
              • Union officials fear the 25-man Indian crew onboard Ever Given could be arrested and 'made scapegoats'
              • Bow of the 220,000-ton Ever Given was finally dislodged from the sandy bank of the Suez Canal on Monday
              • Fleet of tugboats used high tide to pull on the ship while rescue teams vacuumed sand from the canal bank
              • It remained unclear how long it would take to fully re-open the canal with £6.5bn of trade held up every day
              • Japanese-owned vessel got wedged in crucial trading passage last Tuesday, disrupting global shipping

                  I was reading a Beeb article about day trippers who went to see it arrive.

                  I want to know what's on it.

                      According to the article, so do the people buying the stuff... which I found a little odd, surely there is an exact inventory?

                      A lot of perishables which have to be destroyed, though presumably not too gross as the containers are climate controlled - are they?
