A ghost ship crewed only by CANNIBAL rats is feared to be heading for Britain.
The hulk of cruise ship Lyubov Orlova has been adrift in the North Atlantic for the past year after being cut loose off the coast of Canada.
But now coastguards are reportedly worried the recent storms may have driven her thousands of miles towards our own coastline.
The 300ft vessel, built 40 years ago in the Soviet Union, has nothing aboard but packs of disease-ridden rodents who are forced to prey on one another to survive.
Her current position is unknown despite several high-level searches.
Last year satellites picked up an unidentified blip off Scotland large enough to be the ship — but search planes found nothing.
As well as the authorities, salvage hunters — after the 4,250-ton vessel's £600,000 value as scrap — are scouring the seas for any trace of her.

With all the technology available, satellites that can read newspaper headlines from space,there could possibly be something as large as an ocean liner that no one can find.
