Immingham's our first port of call, say book's authors
TWO authors have updated and re-released a book covering the history of Immingham Port.
Garry Crossland and Chris Turner originally published Immingham – A History Of The Deep Water Port in 2006.
They have updated the book with a new introduction and two further chapters, highlighting the developments that have taken place since 2005 and what is expected in the future.
Mr Crossland, a former commercial manager for Associated British Ports, said: "To make this version special in comparison to the original, we have replaced some of the original photographs, added new ones as well as introduced colour images in the last two chapters.

"Like our previous publications, the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to a charitable cause, which, in this case, is the Immingham 100 Legacy Fund.
"The fund has been established to support Immingham One Voice and Oasis Academy Immingham. The book now extends to almost 40,000 words and includes more than 140 photographs from the beginning of the 20th Century to the current decade."
Chris said: "I have helped with the technical details because of my background as senior assistant dock master, which I was until 2001.
"We always said we would write a book. It gave me something to do in retirement and I kept visiting the Dock Offices. I spent hours down in the cellars looking at old photos.
"The archive they keep there has been very effective for us and we are both extremely grateful to ABP for keeping it secure in the old police cells."
He said he felt pride in the latest edition.
Immingham – A History Of The Deep Water Port retails at £14.99 and is available at Waterstones in Freshney Place.
