Quebec wants relics of Rhyl ship





The Canadian city of Quebec wants to get hold of part of the wreckage of a wooden sailing ship submerged off the north Wales coast for 101 years.

The vessel, the City of Ottawa, has been laid up on a sandbar in Rhyl's Foryd harbour since 1906, where it was taken to be broken up.

Built in Quebec in 1860, one of the city's councillors, Rainer Bloess, wants a beam or relic from the ship.

Denbighshire Council said it was happy to work with the Canadian authority.
