The Families have taken their own professional advice, through Bruce McLean, engineer, and are awaiting his report which will bring together technical, commercial and contingencies associated with possible recovery.

That Report will come to the families, so they may gain a sound understanding of this sensitive issue.

If correctly reported, the article discloses information outside the knowledge of the Families. They will rely on the professional advice they receive, and determine the appropriate course of action, once that is to hand.
