Both these movements now removed from the Port of Tyne website.

I was down at North Shields this morning and I don't think I have ever seen the river so empty. There was only PRINCESS SEAWAYS on her berth and nothing as far as I could see on the Riverside Quay through to the car terminals. BR-exited.

I spent the early part of this evening at the Alum House, possibly the oldest pub in South Shields, at a regular meeting of a group of 'Maritime Professionals' - when I arrived, just after 5:30, Princess Seaways had just sailed and there was not a single sea-going vessel in the river between Hebburn Dock and the piers. I’ve not seen such a situation before and I suspect that it might be the first time in my lifetime that such a thing has happened – unbelievable! However, there are at least three ships lying off the river.

I note that all "Maritime meetings" are held in pubs.

They won't let them into the Darby and Joan halls, even less the church halls.
