January 8th

On 8th January 1902, James Bell, 26, skipper of Hull trawler Jupiter was lost with all his crew when she stranded on Rumble Holm, Shetland.

On 8th January 1910, Alfred Spencer, shoemaker, was working in his shop in Marine Drive, Hornsea, during a storm when the cliff edge collapsed.  As he could not get through the door he had to be rescued through a hole knocked in the wall. Only one source for this story, so if anyone can verify it, I would be grateful for a source. photo shows modern Hornsea
