Update: 2:23PM A BULK carrier tried to fight ferocious winds whipped up by Cyclone Evan but lost and ran aground on the edge of the reef in the Suva Harbour.

The Starford, believed to be carrying equipment for the China First Railway Group constructing the Nabouwalu highway, dragged its anchor at 11.30am and was pushed on to the reef close to the entrance of the harbour.

Its agent, Carpenters Shipping, was discussing with the Chinese company on what to do to refloat the ship.
