These pictures of the Yewglen floundered at Beadnell Point in 1960 were sent to the Gazette by a former staff photographer.

Brian Wood took them in February that year, the month after he started as a trainee photographer at the Berwick Advertiser. He left in September 1963 to join the Birmingham Planet, one of the first full colour newspapers in the UK. He joined Coventry Newspapers in 1965, ending up as assistant editor in 1996, before retiring in 2000. Brian is now freelance and a tutor in photography and digital imaging with Warwickshire County Council.
