A memorial service for maritime engineer Paul Lacey was held at St Lawrence Jewry Church, City of London, on 27 October. Lacey was best known for chairing the British Standards Institute's maritime structures committee. He also led the panel which produced design guidance for ship to shore bridges, commonly known as ro-ro or linkspan bridges, formed following the 1994 Ramsgate bridge collapse where a walkway linking a ferry to the dockside collapsed (NCE 22 September 1994). Lacey was also an ICE fellow and member of the maritime board. He died on 3 September.
