    The operators of a barge that ran aground near Cervantes last week, have enlisted experts from the United States to try and free the vessel.

    The barge left Henderson, south of Fremantle, 10 days ago, bound for Barrow Island but came adrift in rough seas and struck a limestone reef in a marine park last Thursday.

    The barge's operator, Offshore Marine Services Alliance, says divers have inspected the hull and noted that there is some damage, but it is not serious.
