An exciting scene was witnessed at Flamborough on
Wednesday when the steam trawler Lark, of Hull,
was returning to port with a cargo of fish, ran onto the rocks under Buckton
cliffs, near Flamborough. The vessel ran aground in thick fog at and despite the crew signalling their
state of distress, she was not discovered until after daylight when the
Coastguard from Speeton arrived on the beach.
They promptly raised the alarm and the lifeboat crews at
Filey & Flamborough as well as the Rocket Brigade, all mustered and sped to
the scene. The Flamborough boat was the first to reach the stranded vessel,
which had faired badly and had been holed several times.
The wreck lies at Gps Ref: TA 160 –750 lying @ a mile South
of the Diamond. Her Boiler and a post break the seas surface at low tides.
