In the early morning a British North Sea patrolling squadron of battle and light cruisers and destroyers encountered a German squadron of four battle cruisers with light cruisers and destroyers, apparently making for the British coast. They engaged them and the enemy speedily retreated. The British vessels pursued and kept up a running fight, the German cruiser Bluccher being sunk and two others badly damaged. No British vessel was lost, and the personal casualties were slight.
