British shipbuilding icon swans off into the Indian sunset

London: Some of the last vestiges of Britain's once dominant shipbuilding industry are being shipped off to India. The Swan Hunter shipyard based in Newcastle upon Tyne is to be dismantled and shipped to Mangalore. Bharati Shipyard bought the 146-year-old yard last month. Swan Hunter closed last year. [23/04/07]
