Accidents happen some memories of accidents at sea.
On 28th January 2015, the Hoegh Osaka had a mechanical malfunction causing her to tip and to prevent her rolling over she was steered onto the Bramble bank and beached.
After a salvage operation, she was righted and returned safely to port in Southampton. I took the above photographs from the Isle of Wight ferry.
In 2002 I took some photographs in Portsmouth of HMS Nottingham returning to the UK for repair welded to a transport ship after running aground off Lord Howe Island in September 2002 Australia.
