Ship 1, Bridge 0. Put another way: ship won, bridge lost.

A SEVERE thunderstorm forced a cargo ship to break its mooring and smash into the Fremantle rail bridge overnight.

The storm, which hit the city just before 10pm last night, brought heavy rain to much of the South West and the city, and blacked out 20,000 homes.

Freo rail bridge

That’s what you get when a 14000 tonne ship breaks its mooring lines. All six of them.
