The Fulda, loaded with 756 tonnes of feed, had proceeded into the lock when the vessel accidentally moved too far forward and struck the barrier over the lock. The Fulda sustained significant bow damage and was detained by authorities. No reports of injuries or pollution released. The water police launched an investigation into the incident.
