Fines for captain and owner of party boat which collided with police dock and vessel

Post by Waterbaby »


"The captain and the owner of a passenger boat have been prosecuted by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency after it collided with both a police dock and police vessel, causing considerable damage.......
After the partygoers had disembarked at Canary Wharf shortly before 11pm, the Jewel of London began to travel back towards its mooring at Festival Pier on the South Bank....
At 11.05pm the boat hit the Metropolitan Police Service Marine Unit workshop pontoon, causing considerable damage to the dock and to the vessel itself.....
It then reversed out of the pier, hitting a moored police vessel with two officers onboard.

Mr Wakefield later admitted to having fallen asleep."
