Following the Liverpool Yellow Duckmarine incident on 15th June 2013, London Duck Tours Ltd takes the opportunity to clarify;
1. London Duck Tours Ltd is a separate, independently owned and managed business operating to higher and more vigorous safety standards than those of the other UK operators including Liverpool.
2. Our vessels (Dukws) are totally different in engineering terms, having been completely rebuilt and fully refurbished before entering service. Other operators within the UK have regretfully attempted to copy our very successful product by utilising original 70 year old vehicles, which do not operate to our level of safety standards. They have also attempted to mirror the appearance of our fleet.
London Duck Tours Ltd fully understand that after the Liverpool Yellow Duckmarine incident you may have concerns and wish to better understand the company’s risk assessment procedures. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to email Matt Watts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to popular demand we will be running extra James Bond Tours on Sunday 23rd June at 10.00, 12.10, 13.50 & 15.40. Tours are likely to sell out so book now to avoid disappointment!
