    Default Near tragedy on the Tay

    Went for a paddle yesterday as the Tay was high and the tide was good to allow us to get down from the Almond mouth to the city and watch the last few dragon boat races and back up on the tide. On getting there we found nobody about, however a passing fisherman in a motorised dinghy came past telling us it had been abandoned due to there being an accident and one person had been injured.

    Full (?) story here... http://www.thecourier.co.uk/news/loc...tival-1.424634

    However it seems that there is more to the story so I will ask about and get back to you all!

    Not quite the Tay Bridge disaster, thankfully.
