'Critical' 24 hours for stranded cargo ship Hoegh Osaka

Salvage teams have boarded the cargo ship stranded off the south coast of England to plan what to do next.

The Hoegh Osaka car transporter started listing soon after it left the Port of Southampton on Saturday evening.

It was deliberately grounded on a sandbank to prevent it from completely turning into the sea - which would have had much worse consequences.
