MAIB investigates European Causeway incident

[ December 19, 2018   //   ]

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) is investigating an incident in which several lorries broke free on board the P&O European Causeway between Larne and Cairnryan in the early hours of Tuesday morning (18 December). The cargo shifted during “extreme” weather conditions, leading to several lorries toppling onto their sides and crushing cars and other vehicles.
The NI Ferry website added that there were unconfirmed reports of drivers being illegally in truck cabs and having to be freed by the emergency services. Work has been continuing to clear the wreckage at Cairnryan port in Scotland
