Twenty-five boats were damaged at Grimsby & Cleethorpes Yacht Club in the early hours of a Saturday morning. It’s believed that recently fitted high-definition CCTV security cameras and seven LED floodlights were not switched on.
Firefighters prevented a boat fire spreading in the busy Medway Bridge Marina in Rochester, Kent. A 1970s-built, 28ft motor cruiser was undergoing a major refit on land when the blaze broke out. A Kent Fire & Rescue Service spokeswoman said, “The cause is believed to be accidental, possibly due to a cigarette.”
