The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is sending a team to St. John's to investigate a fuel tanker that ran aground near Nunavut.

The MV Nanny ran aground near Baker Lake, Nunavut, on Oct. 25 but was given permission to head to St. John's for repairs.  

According to Transport Canada, Coastal Shipping Ltd, a subsidiary of the Woodward Group of Companies in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, owns the tanker.

The vessel also ran aground in September 2010 in the Northwest Passage. It had been carrying more than nine million litres of diesel fuel at the time.
