Two go under Sandbanks Ferry

On Friday evening a small boat collided with Sandbanks Ferry with one of the two crew being swept under the chain ferry vessel.

The small inflatable dinghy suffered an engine failure whilst in the path of the ferry.

The person who was thrown into the water to be swept under the ferry surfaced on the other side. Two Poole lifeboats were quickly on the scene.

The Bournemouth Daily Echo has an updated report.
