Steph of Ladram in collision south of the Scillys - all OK.

 


At around 1am on Sunday morning the Steph of Ladram (ex-Sapphire III) 



was fishing south of the Scillys...



when she was involved in a collision with a coaster, suffering damage to her port derrick...



and gantry. Luckily, none of the five crew were injured and the skipper was able to secure the trawls alongside before making way, at reduced speed, to Newlyn. Before arrival, three additional hands were taken on board from Penlee all-weather Lifeboat after which both beam trawls were dropped on the sea bed in Mounts Bay to be recovered at a later date. She is currently being prepared for repair.
