From the Northern Echo, 16th. December 2012

....the coastguard was called to a report of 15 anglers being knocked over by a freak wave on Roker Pier in Sunderland at 1.30pm that same afternoon.
One angler was injured, believed to be suffering from a broken leg, and had to be airlifted to hospital in Newcastle, after a 16ft wave pushed him into railings.
The other anglers were led to safety through a tunnel beneath the pier.
