Several incidents have occurred over the last week.
Rangers assisted a school visit of children from London.
Activities included bug hunting ,countryside activities, and information
regarding an eel set.
The Breydon crew also helped put out a fire on the bank near the pump house on the
south side of Breydon. They supported the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service by attending by river with water packs as vehicle access
to the site was not possible.
The Breydon launch was also called to a vessel that had broken down and was tied to a post. The vessel had actually run aground and was later towed off by the hire craft towboat service.
A hire vessel trying to moor collided with the moored Reedham Ferry
resulting in a crew member of the hire boat sustaining a broken arm. Three day boats were set adrift in Wroxham.
A joint patrol took place with the EA fisheries enforcement officer on our vessel on the Upper Thurne. This was also joined by Broads Beat Police on their new boat.
