Traction Engine Crash - Corfe Castle

Coastguard Nick had a lucky escape about 45 mins ago!

He was standing outside having a quiet pint when a traction engine appears to have ....lost traction. Nick managed to pick his daughter up and run out of the way and not spill a drop of beer; that's Coastguard training for you :-)

Everyone is ok.

## It's a Steam Roller not a Traction Engine.... easy mistake to make when the front half is missing.
