What a shame. We went on it a year ago and it was great fun, but when you are in the water, you are riding VERY low. It must have been really scary for the passengers.
I hope they can get the problems sorted out.

yeh i was in liverpool costco at the time heard all the sirens and helicopters and the such and wondered what was going on, honestly thought it was all police then i saw the coastguard chopper go overhead and thought maybe someone jack-sparrowed a ferry or something.

hope everyone gets out ok!

I am just uploading some video now. The funny thing is you can smell diesel in the air but you can't see it until you are right above the water.. a hidden danger? see my pic on http://aerialmedia.co.uk

video here

Tremendous videos on the aerialmedia site; loved the tour of Port Sunlight and the music you put with it.
You have a PM.
