Full titles read: "Fog... the seaman's worst enemy! - Fortunately, no lives were lost as trawler "Sarah" and S.S. President ran ashore in dense fog on rocky Northumbrian Coast."
Various shots show the trawler, 'Sarah' on her side against rocks after running ashore. The SS President is also seen on her side against the rocky coast as rough waves crash around her. Some people stand on the rocks and watch as the trawler is lifted back into an upright position; the sea is still very rough.
