The superstructure does not appear to have been locked

It looks as though the slew lock was not activated and that the superstructure swung over the side as the loading jacks were retracted which probably caused the trailer to list to one side. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) was informed of the incident and is expected to investigate.
