Felixstowe Port Cranes Crushed Like A Giant Grasshopper

High winds in Felixstowe had the effect of causing Millions of pounds worth of damage when the vessel containing cranes delivered from China broke loose and crashed into the existing cranes at Felixstowe at the Landguard terminal. The view from the nearby common is like that of a crushed giant grasshopper

Below a tug brings in a single crane looking a little top heavy compared with the size of the vessel. You cannot but admire the skill of all the transporting specialists.
