Nov 2011 Shipping No.84

The  Quay was closed over the weekend whilst  this  ship was in port  for safety reasons.  Michael the crane driver  advises me that he would have had to wash the Quay down on the Friday evening, and  turn out on the Sunday evening to stop vehicles using the Quay  as the lorries with the clay were  due to arrive early on the Monday morning. Would everybody please appreciate this is a working port and your safety is the prime concern.
