A busy but peaceful Easter

Although the Easter holidays were a busy time for the rangers, there have been very few incidents.

A total of five hire boats ran aground in the Breydon area. One was a breakdown in bad weather and the lifeboat was called to evacuate the crew.

Two people fell in at Great Yarmouth Yacht Station but were quickly recovered from the water.

After a call to youths throwing stones and damaging a  private boat at Great Yarmouth BA staff detained two juveniles who were dealt with by the police.

Eighteen blue book written warnings have been issued by rangers for navigation offences. Despite these, there has been a noticeable decline in speeding of day boats fitted with new GPS speed indicators in Wroxham.

Several new members of staff have been signed off as fully trained and have already been busy dealing with the myriad of tasks that rangers deal with everyday.
