The Herald Families' Association, formed 10 years ago after the sinking of the Herald of Free Enterprise, was formally wound up in Dover last night at the end of a series of events to commemorate the 194 people who died in the tragedy. The decision came at the association's final meeting, chaired by the businessman Maurice de Rohan, who lost his daughter and son-in-law in the disaster which happened as the ferry left Zeebrugge in Belgium.

Ferry services in Ramsgate, Kent, were brought to a standstill yesterday when more than 200 people had to be evacuated from the Holyman Sally catamaran after the vessel, attempting to dock in dense fog, hit a stationary ferry.
