15/6/18. 17:02hrs. Team paged by Humber to reports of a Vessel stuck under St. Olaves bridge with one person in the water. Upon arrival, the vessel was moored alongside and one male had been recovered from the river. A female that had been onboard at the time had taken a fall and sustained injuries. Team members carried out first aid until the arrival of the Ambulance service. #059/18.

As we were about to leave the scene, a second job came through reporting of a vessel adrift on the lower Bure. Along with our flank team Winterton CRT and the Gorleston ILB the vessel was recovered and secured alongside. #060/18.

While awaiting the arrival of the Police at the previous job, a third job came in, to reports of a person suffering a medical episode on a vessel at Acle. The Winterton Team were dispatched to the scene. Once a handover to the police was completed, we started to make our way to Acle, where on route we were stood down. #061/18.

19/6/18. 22:13hrs. Team paged by Humber to reports of a collision between vessels on the lower Bure with unknown casualties. Upon arrival it was found that one of the Broads Authorities mud wherries had been let loose from its moorings further up river and drifted down with the tide past the yacht station to Haven bridge where it was intercepted by the Gorleston ILB, they managed to hold it in the tide while awaiting the arrival of The towing vessel from Everett Marine Services, that had been requested by the Team to assist as it has more power to tow something of that size compared to the ILB. On route he had picked up some members of the BA and between everyone of scene the vessel was eventually moored up safely. Unfortunately during its journey downstream there was a couple of boats damaged, but luckily no injuries. #066/18.

An interesting choice of words, ”...had been let loose from its moorings...”. That suggests a deliberate and malicious act by an unknown third party. I’m just curious to know (but doubt I ever will) how that conclusion was reached, rather than this being the result of carelessness, or some other cause. Still, it will be a useful report the BA could use to reject any insurance claims.

Paladine, I wonder if BA would be able to use that as an argument ?
Ultimately the vessel is their responsibility whether untied by a third party or carelessness on behalf of employees.
Only basing my theory on construction industry practice, where malicious damage or personal injury to even trespassers is ultimately the contractors responsibility ! Hence the Heras fencing or hoardings you find around most large organisations sites.

Without wishing to hi-jack a very useful thread, we're talking about the tort of negligence here. But we don't know just where the barge had been moored, nor what security measures were in place. I was simply commenting on the inference in the report that the barge had been set adrift, as opposed to some other cause of it leaving the mooring.

Asked one of the rangers about this yesterday.  He said that normal practice was for BA vessels moored overnight to be chained as well as tied, and it appeared that this had been a deliberate act of vandalism, the chain having been cut through. BA and police are investigating.  Wherry had been moored near Marina Quays.

Humber Coastguard paged Hemsby broads rescue to a vessel taking on water near Horning. When we arrived on scene the broads authority boats had water pumps in use. Vessel hole was plugged by people onboard. Boat was then escorted back to Richardson’s boat yard, Horning to be lifted out of the water. Bacton Coastguard also on scene to help, great team work and great coordination from Humber Coastguard.

Broads Lifeboat stood down and returned to station.
