Red-faced workers watched in horror today as a lorry carrying tonnes of scaffolding fell off the side of a marina - and landed on top of a boat. Staff at the scene blamed a 'mechanical failure' for the mishap, which saw the lorry roll backwards over the edge of the marina. Luckily, it was saved from plunging into the water by a small tug boat a few feet below. The lorry tonight remained hanging over the edge of Bourne End Marina, on the River Thames, in Slough, Bucks, until a crane can recover it. A marina spokesman said he called out when he saw the vehicle start to roll at around 3pm, but it was too late. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE.
