Westshore Industries at Delta Port dealing with a mess this morning after a freighter ran into one of their ship berths.
Ray Dykes with Westshore says the large ship collided with a trestle leading into one of the two deep sea berths, removing a large portion of it.
He says the area hit carrys a conveyor belt with coal, and some coal may have hit the water...
"Well the berth was loading at the time so when it was cut asunder there would have been a tiny bit of coal going in. It stopped - it's got emergency braking systems on it"
Dykes says no one was injured and he beleives there was no damage to the ship.
He says the first priority is restoring power to the birth in order to secure the coal supplying conveyor.
