Rough Weather

As per our post yesterday, the rough weather has hit Swanage today and the team have been out dealing with this speedboat blown from its mooring and washed up against the Parish Slipway.  With a strong petrol smell, presumably caused by a damaged tank, the team cordoned off the area to protect the public before trying to secure the vessel with support from our colleagues at St Albans Coastguard.

Meanwhile in the centre of town, boat trips are to be offered from the junction of Shore Road and Station Road, if the photo of this pontoon is to be believed.

20:29 Update:- By the end of play we think it is at least 12 boats / tenders that have sank.
