Wine thieves ‘dismissed’ (NZ)

Two divers working on the salvage of the Rena have been fired after helping themselves to wine inside one of the ship’s containers. Astrolabe, based in Marlborough, had three containers, with 4000 cases of sauvignon blanc wine destined for a customer in Europe, on board the Rena when it grounded on the Astrolabe reef off Tauranga. The New Zealand Herald reported that Rena salvor Svitzer Salvage says the pair were “dismissed immediately” as soon as it learned wine had been stolen, reports The Marlborough Express.
