Cargo ship hits barge in Storm Angus

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Sun Nov 20, 2016 10:13 pm

A 200m-long cargo ship hit a barge full of rocks in the English Channel, as Storm Angus battered the south coast of England with high winds and heavy rain.

Eleven of the 23 crew members were evacuated by helicopter after the ship got into difficulty off Samphire Hoe near Dover.

The other 12 members remained on board and are working on getting the vessel to a safe port.

Storm Angus is the first named storm of the season.
