IoW chain ferry

Report on BBC news that a crew member of the Isle of Wight chain ferry has received serious injuries after being pinned between the loading ramp and a car. Reports state the car driver accelerated by mistake. Hopefully the injured man will make a full recovery.

Slightly more info in local press:

'The man's injuries are serious but not critical, a spokesman for the ambulance service said.'

Good advice is usually ignored, but that's no reason for not giving it. Miss Marple.
