Such a shame

Sadly this was the scene in Portsmouth harbour today...

She came in impaled on the bow of a visiting reefer...

Now gone to a land fill in the New Forest. Thankfully doesnt happen too often but such a pity never the less.

Is very sad!

Looking at the carcase, I suspect it was already dead before being picked up by the ship.
