Sunday 24 January 2016


FIRE & RESCUE report
Time: 1.08pm
Location: Shoreham power station
Incident: EXPLOSION
East/West Sussex crews sent to reported explosion. Thankfully just a small transformer fire out on arrival
 
SELSEY LIFEBOAT
Time: 2.08am
Incident: Selsey Lifeboat gets early morning SOS
The volunteer crew at Selsey RNLI were paged at 2.08 a.m. by UK Coastguards. The 20-metre French stern trawler, 'Eridan', had reported total machinery failure in a position 8 miles south-east of the Lifeboat station.
The fishing vessel had four persons aboard, weighed 113 tons and had a 3m draught. They had been fishing when the machinery failure occurred and so 230 metres of net were still in the water, streaming out of the stern of the vessel. The weather on scene was wind SW force 5 in moderate to rough seas with spells of rain and fog patches.
The Selsey Lifeboat launched at 2.20am. arriving on scene at 2.58 a.m. The French skipper said that they would release the net, anchor it to the sea bed and buoy it for recovery later. When complete at 4.10 a.m. a tow was established between the Lifeboat and the trawler and began to tow the vessel to Portsmouth due to its size.
Due to tide, weather and the size of the vessel, progress was slow. During the tow it was established that another French trawler was on its way to take over the tow into Portsmouth. At 8am UK coastguard requested that 'Eridan' anchor in the position at that time, some 6 miles south-west of Selsey Bill, and the tow be released by Selsey Lifeboat. Bembridge Lifeboat also launched to stand by the trawler until the arrival of the other French vessel and escort them both into Portsmouth Harbour. - Full report
