Sunken Hephaestus shipwreck to draw in divers and tourists to Maltese waters

Sunken Hephaestus shipwreck to draw in divers and tourists to Maltese waters
Aug 30 2022 Share

The 60m tanker known as the Hephaestus which ran aground on the Qawra coast over three years ago was pulled back into the sea off Gozo to serve as a diving attraction. 

The ship had run aground on the feast of St Paul’s Shipwreck on February 10th 2018 and was stranded on the rocks for six months before being patched up and towed to the Grand Harbour.

The ship was found too costly to repair, but was then cleaned in preparation for the scuttling off Xatt l-Aħmar. The operation to sink the 855-tonne vessel was a delicate operation, with many watching the scene.

The operation was handled by Malta Tourism Authority in collaboration with the Professional Diving School and the Gozo Ministry. 

Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri and Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo both commented on the ship’s scuttling. 

Bartolo said that this provides a new opportunity for divers to enjoy a brand new attraction whilst also drawing in foreign visitors to the site. Camilleri highlighted how this site will be added with the already established 55 sites in Gozo to strengthen the industry.

20 minutes extra injury time during Spartans vs Hibernians first match
Aug 30 2022 Share

20 minutes were added to yesterday’s football match between Hibernians FC and Hamrun Spartans following a serious injury which occurred on the pitch. 

The play was halted on 55 minutes when Spartans’ Bonello collided with Hibernians’ Yunusa Muritala, with both players requiring treatment for several minutes. The latter was stretchered off and substituted due to more serious injuries, with an ambulance arriving on site.

Hamrun Spartans released a statement the following day, wishing the opposing team’s player a speedy recovery, saying that ‘the health of every individual is a priority beyond sports rivalries.’ 

Earlier this year, a Brentford vs Wolves football match also saw around 19 minutes of stoppage time added aftera play had to be suspended. 

A 2013 match between Arsenal and West Ham United was thought to have once held the record for stoppage time at the end of a game, as the clock ticked beyond 102 minutes. However, a Watford and Norwich match beat the record a floodlight record saw the clock reaching 105 minutes.
