Mersey Ferry Services Disrupted

Friday, March 03, 2006
Mersey ferry services are at risk of chaos after part of its landing stage at the Pier Head sank. Fire crews were called out to help evacuate staff and remove equipment from the landing stage, which is also used by the Mersey inshore rescue boat, at around 10 pm on March 1. It is believed exceptionally high tides were responsible for the sinking, which left the landing stage partially under water. Staff from Merseytravel and the Mersey Docks and Harbor Company, which own the stage, as well as the inshore rescue boat, were at the site to assess the damage. It is not known how long ferry services will be disrupted, or the extent of the damage. There were around four members of the Mersey inshore rescue unit on site, who were evacuated, and the area is now being secured, ic Liverpool reported. (Source: ic Liverpool)
