Police launch, River Tyne, South Shields

Northumbria Police

The Northunbria Police area is huge, it is the sixth biggest in the UK and includes South Tyneside, South Shields and the whole of the River Tyne too. Oddly there are still incidents and crimes to investigate on the river in partnership with the Port of Tyne’s Harbourmaster, that’s why they have a rather fast police laucnch seen here against the backdrop of new properties in North Shields.

The police marine division has it’s base on the south side of the river in Jarrow.

Camera details: Konica Minolta Dimage Z3, 420mm lens, 1/160 second, f4.5, iso 50

  1. You’ve just made me realize that we have a couple of large rivers in Manila, but I’ve never ever seen police launches on them. I don’t think we even have any.
