Gas platform off Cromer coast evacuated after being hit by boat
Workers on a gas platform off the Norfolk coast were rescued after a boat hit the offshore structure.
The masts of the Vos Raasay supply vessel hit a bridge of the gas platform about 19 miles off Cromer at 9.30am yesterday (Sunday).
A Humber Coastguard spokesman said 40 people were airlifted by a helicopter as a precaution and no-one was injured.
The supply boat was taken to Lowestoft for minor repairs.
