Tug Tribute on the River Forth for the NHS and all key workers
Tug crews from Forth Ports and INEOS FPS payed their own marine tribute to the hard-working NHS teams and key workers with a water cannon display on the River Forth.
Tugs from Forth Ports and INEOS FPS created a formation near the famous bridges and set off their fire-fighting water cannon equipment creating a spectacular water tribute.
Commenting on the tribute, Captain Alan McPherson, Chief Harbour Master of Forth Ports said: “The marine team wanted to pay their own tribute to all the NHS staff and key workers across the UK. Using our own tugs which operate on the River Forth and tugs used by INEOS FPS at Houndpoint, the crews created a formation near the iconic bridges. We hope that this tribute brings some hope in these difficult times.”
