You shoot forward and hit the lock gates!

The Belgian frigate BNS WESTHINDER (F913) had just secured her shore lines when the tug DHULIA, operated by Alexandra Towing, somehow slipped her rope and collided with the lock gate in the West India Dock, London.
DHULIA was originally the Port of Londonís PLATOON.
