The Hartlepool registered fishing boat the 'GRENAA STAR" was involved in an accident just off the River Tyne this morning.

The Grenaa Star was re-floated last Friday and is currently at the Tyne and Wear Marine yard at Tyne Dock South Shields.

What will happen next I am not so sure as due to her skipper at the time of her collision with the pier was reported locally to be later arrested for being drunk, so Insurance payouts may be an issue??

'If' she can be repaired as she is wood, structural damage may be the biggest issue due to the head on impact not to mention engine room damage.

Newspaper report:

"A spokesman for Northumbria Police said a 53-year-old man has since been arrested by police on suspicion of being a "master, pilot or seaman unfit through drink".

As I understand, it is not certain whether it was the skipper or one of the crew.
