Spare a thought for the poor crew of the Hanjin Scarlet – still stuck on board as the bankruptcy saga rumbles on. Moored off British Columbia on Canada’s west coast, the crew – some of whom have been on board for 10 months now, have had a visit and gifts from local labour unions and the Filippino community. The ship now has a Christmas tree, the sailors have warm clothes and there is a suckling pig for Christmas Eve dinner, as well as drinks and gifts. They don’t know when they will be getting home – but they seem more cheerful for now.
