On 21 August, 71 containers of the 89 said to have been illegally exported to Brazil were repatriated. (see MRW story)
A further ten are expected to arrive in the port of Felixstowe at lunchtime aboard the Safmarine Nile. They will join the 71 containers, which are being stored at a secure facility near to the port. All of the containers are to be fumigated before the Environment Agency carries out a full inspection.
The remaining eight containers yet to be returned are currently being packed by Brazilian local authorities to be brought back at a later date.
