Cargo ship leaves Baltimore three months after bridge crash

The cargo ship that struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore has left the city's port almost three months after crashing.
 
The ship was aided by four tugboats on Monday morning to make the 16-20 hours journey to Norfolk in Virginia.
 
Six repair workers were killed on the bridge when the ship crashed on March 26.
 
The Port of Baltimore shipping channel was not fully re-opened until June, following the removal of 50,000 tonnes of wreckage and the relocation of the ship to port.
 
The crew of 21, who are mostly Indian, had been stuck on the ship as it languished in the channel.
