The police and Coastguard were called to a dispute aboard the "Arctic Lady" which was heading out from Hammerfest on May 23, at 8.30 p.m. Two Crew members had started to fight, and the police needed the assistance of the Coastguard to sort it out. A man in his late 30s was arrested and taken to the police station for questioning.
The victim, a man in his early 40s, had broken his nose and was rushed to hospital for examination. The LNG-tanker briefly returned to Hammerfest around 10 p.m. before resuming its trip to Barcelona.
Ferry breakdown caused frustration among customers
The "Loch Shira" broke down on Mar 23, 2013, just before 8 a.m., and the service did not resume until after 10 a.m., with a smaller replacement vessel being put into operation. Caledonia Macbrayne was waiting for a specialist engineer who was on his way from Germany, and they assured to be doing everything they can to get the ferry fixed in time for the holiday weekend. However, large Queues built up due to the lack of transport capacity.
