A 51-year-old ship’s captain has been charged with being drunk in charge of a vessel at Teignmouth.

Police were called to the harbour at about 6.30 p.m. on Saturday 15 December 2012 as The Sandetti was preparing to leave. The captain failed a breath test and was arrested.

Gert Kolkman from Horlingen, Holland, has since been charged with the offence of being the professional master of a ship whilst over the prescribed limit and was due to appear before Torquay Magistrates yesterday.
