On 21st July, the Dutch DJ's on board were told that the station was to close at 18:00 that day, and their services would not be required after 13:00,as the last five hours were already pre-recorded.

The Dutch staff left the ship and after staying overnight in Harwich flew to Holland from Southend Airport. While Radio 227 closed down, its sister station Radio 355 remained on air until fifteen minutes into August 6th 1967.
