Egbert says 'HI TO THE GIRLS'!!!

'As a crew we all owe our lives to Alan. He was very calm, very cool.'
Alan took charge and organised evrything.

Eg. also said ; 'without his leadership we wouldn't have made it'...Alan 'put his own life ahead of ours'...

Alan dived below the water for the survival suits/gear....

'We're OK.'

The boys have just been on local ITV News, Meridian. They looked in fine form. Keep your eyes open it could make national news if not much kicks off in the world today.

Alan said the wheelhouse was ripped off!!!
