Sad news

I know that a lot of folk who visit these pages are aware of the recent sad news of the accidental deaths of many people in the ferry / pleasure boat collision. I for one would like to express my sadness on hearing this news & extend my sympathy to those affected.

I think most of us visiting this forum would agree.

Totally agree. I rode that ferry several times. Can't imagine being dumped into the cold dark sea at night. Must be terrifying. And all the parents who lose children in this tragedy.
