Scarborough dawn

Down in Scarborough in North Yorkshire for first light this morning to finish off a commercial job I’ve been working on for the last couple of weeks and took the opportunity to grab a couple of shots for myself around the harbour while I was there…

Whitby harbour fog

As Whitby in North Yorkshire was shrouded in fog this morning I headed there to shoot a few pictures as some of the fishermen headed out to check their pots or otherwise got prepared for putting out to sea…

Whitby Tragedy

The fishing community in Whitby was struck by tragedy yesterday as news emerged that two scallop fishermen had died on board a boat in the harbour.

Police were called to the mooring near Whitby’s West Pier in the morning where the bodies of two men had been discovered on board a fishing boat. They were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

It is believed they were amongst a party of four or five vessels registered in Milford Haven in South Wales who were visiting the area to catch scallops. It is believed some of the men may have been from Northumberland.

The cause of the deaths is currently being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

Don’t feed the seagulls – it encourages them to abandon their natural habitats – although in Whitby this is their natural habitat!
