Photographs  Adrian Sweeney 2013

LARA 1 (formerly MERSEY MAMMOTH) at work positioning a dolphin during repair works, in rather foul weather, at Twelve Quays North Berth on Friday, January 25, 2013. The Birkenhead Twelve Quays north ro/ro berth was damaged on Friday July 06, 2012by the cargo ship KASTOR (2,452grt) which was approaching Birkenhead Alfred Lock. The collision collapsed two dolphins and the connecting ropemen's walkway.
