PLA News Releases
The Port of London Authority (PLA) has welcomed the publication of the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s (MAIB) report into the accident last October in which pilot Gordon Coates lost his life. Gordon was fatally injured as he attempted to board the cargo vessel Sunmi, in Gravesend Reach on 5 October 2016.
Lads at Leigh Ramblers YFC under 12s, whose home ground is just over a mile from the Thames, are now able to stay that little bit drier in the new waterproof gear, which bears the PLA logo. Leigh Ramblers was founded in 1902, seven years before the PLA, which oversees safe navigation on the UK’s busiest river.
