Skipper Hurt in Dundee Sandboat Blast

Lunchtime passersby in Dock Street today were startled by an explosion in the sandboat Wisbech at Earl Grey Dock.  Hatch covers were hurled into the air by the blast, and a window was shattered.

It is believed that a burning match had fallen into a can of petrol in the cabin of the ship, which belongs to the Tay Sand Co. Ltd., Royal Arch.

The skipper, James Smith, 335 King Street, Broughty Ferry, was slightly injured, but was able to drive himself away for medical attention.
