PICTURE SPECIAL: Fishing boat runs aground after hitting pier

Waiting for Video...

THESE are the dramatic pictures after a fishing boat ran aground in South Shields this morning.

The Grenaa Star struck the South Pier and started taking in water, and had to be helped by two Tynemouth RNLI lifeboats.

The skipper of the vessel was taken to hospital, but two other crew members were unhurt.

Efforts are to be made to salvage the boat at today’s high tide.
