UK storms: Footage shows deadly waves from cruise ship
Footage has emerged of a cruise ship being rocked by a severe storm, around 45 minutes before a passenger on board was killed.
James Swinstead, 85, of Colchester, Essex, died when a huge wave crashed into the British vessel, Marco Polo, on Friday.
His widow, Helen, praised the crew but criticised the vessel as "badly maintained".
Operator Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) said the ship was fully compliant with "strict" maritime regulation.
