A ship's captain was being questioned by police today after a cargo vessel collided with a gas platform 40 miles north east of Cromer and sunk several hours later.

The 2000-tonne Jork struck the unmanned Viking Echo platform just before 6pm on Saturday and sunk at about 8am this morning.

The vessel had been carrying grain from Lubeck in Germany and was destined for the River Humber. The grain is thought to have played a part in the sinking once the collision had happened.

The Jork sunk after bursting its hull, caused by the wheat on board “swelling”, said Mario Siano, watch manager at Yarmouth Coastguard.
