1989 Marchioness disaster remembered on the river Thames

The 30th anniversary of the Marchioness disaster was remembered in a vigil next to the River Thames. Fifty-one young people died when the pleasure boat Marchioness collided with a dredger and sank in central London in the early hours of August 20th, 1989. Survivors and families of the victims on Monday evening joined a procession from Southwark Cathedral to Bankside, next to the site of the accident, where a short service was held.
