Cutty Sark Coming Together Again

Some good news from Greenwich at last. Six months on from the dramatic inferno the Cutty Sark restoration is making progress. Thankfully her skeleton of iron girders withstood the fire so, aside from the small matter of increasing restoration costs by £15m, she's on track to reopen to the public in 2010.

We were almost as gutted as she was when the news broke back in May so we'll be interested to hear the verdict of the police investigation, which is finally nearing its end as we write.

BBC London have been on board and post this report and you can also browse official photos here.

If you want to chip into our dear old tea clipper's coffers, buy some Christmas cards here.
