Sad Loss x UTC.

I would like to inform any one who new Capt Pete Jordan of his sad loss. He died today in a tragic accident in the Gulf along with several of the crew on the tug he was in command of, my thoughts are with his family, he was a great friend and a great seaman.

Apparently they were working at a SPM carrying out maintenance. Some sort of a gas leak occured causing an explosion. Seven crew members dead and others injured including contract workers. Only one person escaped unscathed.

Will do. I spoke to her last night and am speaking to her again today. His body should have been home yesterday but there is some red tape over the death certificate.

Hull Daily Mail

Good afternoon,

My name is Kevin Shoesmith. I'm a local reporter on the Hull Daily Mail.

Firstly, to the moderator of the site - please accept my appologies for the direct approach. A contact has directed me to your website, believing this to be the best method.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

I've been made aware of the sad loss of Peter Jordan in the Middle East.

I understand he worked for years at United Towing, as well as volunteering his time to save countless lives at sea on Humber Lifeboats.

For these reasons, if the family agree, we would like to include a glowing tribute to him in the paper.

Can anyone provide me with a) a contact number for his family so I can ask their permission b) any information about the type of man Peter was c) any favourite memories

I can be contacted all day this afternoon (Sunday) in the office on 01482 315266

Many thanks for your help,

Kevin
