A lorry broke through the rear doors of the Stranrar -Belfast ferry. See BBC report

I felt sorry for the passengers who were stuck on the ferry for the best part of a day.
As the ferry couldn't berth properly, they had to unload the passengers with a fire brigade extending ladder (cherry picker).

Hi All

Evidently the truck was full of chocolate - the driver ran off after the incident and there is now a 'Bounty' on his head (possibly only English members will get this joke!)

ah yes...the "Bounty" I'd gladly earn.

*dreams away to coconut trees and sandy beaches.
