I suppose it depends on who you talked to there. My take on the local scuttlebutt was that the old gates suffered from neglect over a considerable period prior to their failure. The harbour is open to the public and boats there are vulnerable. There doesn't seem to be a lot of confidence that things are going to improve. Last I heard was there was a boat torched and it's near neighbour scorched by the fire. Other boats have been broken into and security is not great. Shame really.
