Fishing boat’s near miss with cargo ship Slidur at South Shields
A BOAT’s crew had a lucky escape after their stricken craft almost collided with a cargo ship. The tiny fishing boat broke down on the Tyne near to the ferry landing at South Shields, and became stranded in the path of the 9,500-tonne Slidur as it sailed from Port of Tyne at 11.35am on Friday. The port’s pilot ship Collingwood went to guide the fishing boat Norseme to safety, but a collision was avoided when the master of the Slidur saw the danger ahead, and managed to change the course of the ship with just yards to spare. The drama was witnessed by South Shields man Derek Richardson, 51, who captured the incident on his mobile phone.
