The nine-storey accommodation module that was due to leave the SLP yard in Lowestoft at the weekend could leave in the early hours of Tuesday instead.

The floating hotel, which is destined for the Valhall oilfield in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, was scheduled to leave at about midday on Saturday.

The nine-storey accommodation module that was due to leave the SLP yard in Lowestoft on Saturday is scheduled to leave the town at 4am tomorrow.

The floating hotel, which is destined for the Valhall oilfield in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, was originally due to leave at about midday on Saturday.

Crowds gathered at the sea front but bad weather meant the sail was cancelled and pencilled in for today or tomorrow.

Administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers said this morning that the large module would be tugged out of the harbour today, but this afternoon that changed to 4am on Tuesday.
