    Default Collision Belfast Lough

    Hi Chaps,

    Bit of a smash in Belfast Lough by the looks of it, SEE HERE fortunately it appears nobody has been hurt. Wonder who wasn't looking where they were going.

    Chris.

    Local TV pictures show the Feronias side ripped open above the level of the quayside, through which can be seen the car deck. She is relieving the Stena Mersey currently drydocked in Belfast, so looks like the relief ferry is going to need a relief ferry !
