These stories seem to be a dime a dozen these days, but they still draw me in when I read them: Britney Spears
' songs are being used to deter pirates
off the east coast of Africa.
Ms Owens, who regularly guides huge tankers through the waters, said the shipís speakers can be aimed solely at the pirates so as not to disturb the crew. "Itís so effective the ship's security rarely needs to resort to firing guns," said the 34-year-old, from Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, Stirling. "As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can."
