Ship passengers: 'Ankle deep in sewage'


Around 3,000 passengers have disembarked from a cruise ship in the United States after drifting at sea for days without power.

The Carnival Triumph was towed into Mobile, Alabama, after losing power following a fire in the engine-room last Sunday.

Passengers have described an overpowering stench on board with overflowing toilets and drainpipes making some cabins uninhabitable.
