A crane collapsed at Falmouth Docks in Cornwall in the southwest of the UK this morning. A ship under repair in the yard’s drydock is understood to have sustained damage however there are no reports of any workers being injured.
The accident happened at 0900 hrs this morning with what one Twitter user described as an “enormous bang”. An exclusion zone has been put in place and a number of properties have been evacuated.
The giant crane which has been a feature of the local skyline for the past half century was being dismantled when the accident happened.
