The 23 meter long fishing vessel Simon Albert WR 80 became disabled off Den Helder, Netherlands. The shrimper had gone adrift after its propeller had been fouled by a net. The crew alerted the KNRM who dispatched a lifeboat from Den Helder. The lifeboat took the Simon Albert under tow back to the Den Helder. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released. Reports state the net was cleared from the propeller at the quay.
