World's Biggest Ship Graveyard

Posted: May 15, 2013  |  By: Daniel Miller [Daily Mail]

This is the biggest ship graveyard in the world - where huge tankers and cruise liners are scrapped on the shorefront by teams of labourers using little more than hand tools.

The job is considered one of the most dangerous in the world with workers earning a pittance of just £2.25 a day. But amazingly there is no shortage of willing recruits.

They come from a nearby squatter settlements and every morning swarm a 10k stretch of sandy beach at Gadani in Pakistan.
