Bulk carrier MV Belle Rose was refloated last week having run aground on Monad Shoal off the Philippines, the Manila Bulletin reports.

Environmental activists have called on the ship’s owners to bear the cost of repairing the environmental damage caused when the ship struck the reef, which is a popular tourist destination.

The ship was carrying 48,000t of clinker to the Taiheiyo Cement facility in Naga City.
