Boat Explosion 1970, Ludham Bridge

Recommended Posts

Hi All. I have had an enquiry at the Ludham Archive from a person who was on a hire boat which exploded and was burned out at Ludham Bridge in June 1970. She was a child them, but is looking for more information or anyone who remembers the incident.

It was reported in the EDP at the time and I have the press cuttings. The boat was Lady Laura from Martham Ferry Boatyard.

The family on board were unhurt and were helped by locals. I have yet to track any down.

It was a long time ago, but I wonder if any members have any information or remember the incident.

Hi Nigel 

I'm not sure how often Carol looks at the Forum but I just wondered if it would be worth dropping her a line to see if she could help?
