It appears there has been a bit of an incident on the King Seaways last night off the Yorkshire Coast.

Just reading about it on bbc website.

A fire onboard and was forced to turn back to Port of Tyne, Police pinched 2, one for arson, one for affray...going by some news sites, someone had a crafty fag in a cabin and fell asleep...Quite scary by the sounds of it, a fire onboard is supposedly one of the worst nightmares for sailors...Hope the injured people who were airlifted are alright
It appears one of the people involved has a bit of a reputation in the Sunderland area.

The trial has started today in connection to the fire at Christmas.

Legal arguments seem to have caused a delay to proceedings.

Guilty plea entered. What a waste of time.

The Princess Seaways seems to have had a little accident today.

Looking at the pictures, it has travelled a little distance towards the mouth of the river.

Could have been nasty if people were on it, it hit something or something hit it...

Ferries have makeover

Apparently the Newcastle - Iijmuden route will see two new ferries.


The King Seaways and Princess Seaways will be replaced by the current Moby Wonder and Moby Aki.
