The Port of Milford Haven said this morning: "We can confirm that in the early hours of Sunday morning (July 10) an incident occurred when one of its pilot vessels made hard contact with another ship during a routine transfer of pilot operation.

"The impact was such that it resulted in three of the five Port of Milford Haven crew members who were on board at the time suffering injuries which were minor in nature but required hospital attention."
