A former pirate radio ship has made its new home in the River Blackwater.

The Ross Revenge was the third and final radio ship for Radio Caroline, an offshore unlicensed radio station that began broadcasting in the 1960s.

The station was broadcast from the ship from 1983 and the last broadcast was made in November 1990. 

A message on the Radio Caroline website said: “Our radio ship Ross Revenge has moved at last!

“The MV Ross Revenge is now at her new home, moored on the River Blackwater near Bradwell.”
