NotesNews: "Protest groups are shouting: "Go home!" at an American visitor they accuse of endangering lives and threatening the environment. No, not President Bush - that's next week. This week's target is the allegedly toxic fleet of US naval ships arriving in Britain. The "ghost ships" were sent here to be broken up, but the High Court vetoed that after Friends of the Earth branded them "toxic time bombs". The Government, having first said that all was ship-shape with the recycling deal, now says that the ships can dock in Hartlepool only for the winter, and must then be sent back whence they came. ..."
