Clearwater seen here in the Port of Tyne (North East England) on 3rd January 2008. Photographed from North Shields Fishquay.

Operated by the Port of Tyne Authority,the 15m by 6m Clearwater is fitted with a large crane and is used to remove debris such as cars and gas bottles from the river. The steel boat will operate alongside a small twin-hulled aluminium boat called the SITA Eater that is designed specifically to catch the flotsam and jetsam in a removable collection pod which is then emptied by the Clearwater.
