Anchor snarls traffic on Rockinghorse Cay

A large anchor caused delays on East street when it fell from its transport trailer while being delivered to its new owner, Marshes Salvage and Marine Recovery. No injuries were reported, however the anchor resisted attempts to drag it to the side of the road to allow motorists to pass. The resulting two hour delay caused grumblings among the commuters while a loader large enough to lift the anchor back onto its trailer was brought up from Marshes equipment yard. The anchor, intended to assist with vessel salvage, weighs an estimated nine hundred pounds. Eagle Metalworks, the vendor, was cited for improperly secured load, and inoperational or absent lighting.
