London Array hit by drifting Cruise Ship! Emergency services in attendance

Well Ok, it’s only a drill but the fact that some 500 people where taken off their day job to take part in the exercise does suggest that it is a concern to the emergency services and coastguard.

A small cruise liner ( THV Patricia) transiting close to the wind farm loses power and as a result is in collision with the wind farm accommodation ship (Wind Ambition) which is at anchor off the wind farm resulting in a fire onboard. The cruise liner collides into a wind turbine. Some passengers and crew from the cruiser are missing presumed overboard and there are some casualties onboard the accommodation ship. An engineer working on the wind turbine will have injuries and will be evacuated by helicopter.
