"There were no casualties and the fire brigade have now closed the incident. 
"We are most grateful as always to the professionalism and speed of the Avon Fire and Rescue Service and Svitzer tug crews."
Avon Fire and Rescue incident manager Russ Mitchell confirmed the fire was tackled by crews from Temple as well as Avonmouth, Pill and Portishead.
He said the ship was carrying barley, there were no casualties and ignition is thought to be accidental.
On-board firefighters and tug boats joined in a multi-agency approach to the incident, he added.


I have now had my profile suspended on Facebook for 6 days - no explanation as to the reason why. I have decided to post more stuff to irritate the Company / Person that has reported me. Please note that The Port Of Felixstowe are ok with this blog so they can be left out of any finger pointing. 

Thanks for your support - hugely appreciated
