Overnight a sailing dinghy becomes caught on the bridge. It still has the launching trolley attached. This is the second such happening in the last month!

The view from the bridge

Attempted rescue begins

The tree approaches and branches snap off as part of it hits the dinghy

The dinghy begins to move and has lost the float from the top of the mast

It suddenly becomes free of the bridge and the mast enters the water

It turned over and drifted downstream to St Johns Bridge. Rescue attempt failed!

Later ANT volunteers in a Maritime Rescue craft successfully removed the dinghy from the bridge. Excitement over!
