Just How Many Collisions.

Post by Miles » August 11th, 2018, 1:35 pm

I was very kindly provided with some statistics this morning by a fellow boater which highlighted the amount of deaths, injury accidents and also boat fires etc on the Norfolk Broads. This includes natural causes and accidents.
It was quite disconcerting, and I was surprised to see so many people having suffered heart attacks whilst on the Norfolk Broads and also just how many folks went in the water. Some even hitting the propeller.
On seeing this report which I understand is available on the Broads Authority website, I decided to do a freedom of information request.
I have requested the last 10 years of all incidents involving boat collisions on the waterways.
This includes private, hire and commercial craft.
I don't wish to speculate at this point in time but I think it may make for an interesting read.
Bear in mind these will only be the reported and logged incidents.
I'll keep you updated.
