Penzance fishing trawler crashes into rocks in front of spectators in Plymouth

A fishing trawler from Cornwall has crashed onto rocks at Plymouth in the night. A lifeboat from the Plymouth RNLI rushed to the aid of the Algrie at about 9.45pm yesterday (October 7). The 70ft vessel had struck rocks of Mount Batten Pier. HM Coastguard and Devon and Cornwall Police also attended the incident but little could be done as the Algrie was stuck on the rocks. Passersby watched the drama and captured photos of the accident. Photo gallery, click here to read the story 10:26
