Sandbanks ferry running again - two days after chain snapped at same time Barfluer passed
THE Sandbanks Ferry is operating normally again this morning, two days after one of its guiding chains snapped.
Wednesday morning’s incident happened as Brittany Ferries’ cross-channel Barfleur vessel passed by the chain ferry into Poole Harbour at low tide.
However, a subsequent investigation by divers found no sign of any collision on the 20,000 tonne Barfleur’s hull.
The Marine Accident Investigation Branch is investigating.
