Ben and the Bent Bridges at Birkenhead

Photographs  John H. Luxton and Ian Collard 2006

BEN-MY-CHREE appears to have had a mishap when transiting through en route to NSL Bidston early on March 20. 

The photograph top left shows the damage to her bridge on March 22. By March 25 repairs were underway. "A" bridge at Four Bridges appears to have acquired a damaged footwalk.

What is more there appears to be some orange high-viz paint visible in the area of the damage!
