Clear Round for Searoads

"David Broome, the UK's leading show jumper recently took advantage of Searoads Ferries cross-channel ro/ro freight service between Zeebrugge and the Port of London Authority's riverside berth at Tilbury. He is pictured driving his massive horse box off the twin ramped 'Sirius' after returning home from competing on the Continental circuit. The new motorway connections to Tilbury Docks enabled David Broome and his string of horses to quickly return to their home stables in order to prepare for the International Show at Olympia."
