Further BA update
"UPDATE

Due to an ongoing incident on the River Bure at Great Yarmouth, the river between Breydon Water and Stracey Arms is closed until further notice.

For boats needing to know where to moor, there is space at Stracey Arms moorings and also at Berney Mill moorings the other side of the closure.

Acle Bridge has plenty of space but Stokesby is nearly full."

According to the B.B.C., two boats crashed near the Yacht station, and one person was knocked overboard.

I read that too on the BBC, but have now read that whilst that was initially believed to be the case it's now been confirmed it was just one boat that crashed. Into what I don't know.

Thoughts with all concerned. I don't know if there has been a successful rescue.
