Come on guys - how much more inaccurate can this paper become - a small point but Coast Road is I am sure in West Mersea.
I realise this can be seen as a minor point but the Gazette is no longer factually reliable and is guilty of sloppy unchecked journalism.

Coast Road is certainly in West Mersea, nor East. More to the point, where isa the news value in this story? Nobody is dead, and any injuries are apparently not serious. Good. But do we need to be told?
And a boat is always "she", not "it".
