Will there be a MAIB into this - given its an amphibious vehicle?

Can't see them returning to the water anytime soon, if ever. People were very lucky to escape by all accounts.

think I'd need a few stiff drinks to get in one on the road, never mind the wets stuff n I wouldn't want to be drinking any of that crap they call water in the Albert Dock, far too many late night club bears hanging around waiting for the last bus for my liking, guess its been topped up many a time
