Cable InnovatorThe fibre optic cable laying ship 'Cable Innovator' is spotted arriving on the Mersey by local photographer Chris Middleton.

At the time of writing this article (26 April 2011), the AIS tracking system shows that Cable Innovator has remained moored up at Cammell Lairds ship yard since its arrival on Merseyside, and although its presence could be considered as 'demob' status, it's worth remembering that the world famous ship yard previously completed a major contract to lengthen the 'Skagerrak', the other well known cable laying ship belonging to Nexans.
