Today at 14:25 the Millennium Time - part of City Cruises sightseeing fleet - made contact with a commercial vessel while sailing by Coin Street on the River Thames. Six minor injuries have been reported and are being treated by paramedics who were called immediately to the scene, none of whom were hospitalised.
All other passengers were guided off the boat promptly by City Cruises, who continue to do everything they can to support the authorities and those involved in the incident. Investigations are on-going and more information will follow pending its conclusion. The Millennium Time will return to Cherry Garden Pier for repair and all other City Cruises services are running as usual.
