Cornwall Cost Warned about ghost ship Lyubov Orlova and cannibal rats

This is a crazy story. A ship named the Lyubov Orlova was on its way to be scrapped when bad weather hit. Once that weather rolled in the ship towing it cut her loose and headed for shelter leaving the Orlova adrift on the ocean. That ship hasn't been seen again for a year reports ThisisCornwall.

The ship is believed to still be afloat rather than sunk. The ship is 40 years old and high winds on the seas are believed to have pushed the ghost ship towards the UK shore. Emergency beacons that were activated on the ship last year are believed to indicate the ship is near the Cornwall or other western shores.

Researchers say that while the ship is empty of human life, it will undoubtedly be packed with hoards of rats. Those rats are likely eating each other according to researchers. The ship is said to be worth around £600,000 in scrap so people are searching for it.

Those looking for the ghost ship say that if it had sunk the emergency beacons on its life rafts would have activated. The ship was previously a Russian cruise ship and was designed to carry 110 passengers.
