^^ Thats Victor leaning out of the window , that's about 16ft up from the quay and around 120m from where the bollard sheared off the quay , all I can say is that thank god no one was hurt in the station or on the pier as the rope would've killed anyone it hit.

The Grampian Talisman was berthed and it was one of her ropes that caused the failure , she's 76m long and 3000grt
