Ten years since Fedra incident, Captain of the Port satisfied with new procedures

Ten years ago this week a severe storm battered Gibraltar which caused damage in town, the destruction of the Westview Park promenade and the bulk carrier Fedra to smash against Europa Point, splitting it in two and causing an oil spill.

The 10th of October 2008 storm saw local and Spanish emergency services successfully rescue crewmen from the vessel. Michael Beltran looks back at the events of the day.
