A MISSION to bring an iconic vessel 'home' to Greenock from Hawaii has taken a significant step forward.

A bid to remove the Falls of Clyde from Honolulu harbour has been accepted by officials in Hawaii.

Campaign group Falls of Clyde International says it will now work with engineers to make plans to bring her home to Scotland, where it's hoped she will be rebuilt and will be able to sail again.
