Salvors Unique Seaflex, working with Salvesen UK, deployed 230 tons of lift-bag bouyancy to raise the LCT 7074 some four years after it sunk. The vessel took part in several deployments to the Normandy beaches, and after World War II was converted to a naval repair facility before becoming a floating nightclub berthed in Liverpool from around 1950. A £1m ($1.57m) grant from the National Memorial Heritage Fund to save the vessel allowed the salvage operation to begin in earnest in September.
