Zeebrugge ferry disaster marked 30 years on

Services have been held on both sides of the English Channel to mark the 30th anniversary of the Zeebrugge ferry disaster.

The Herald of Free Enterprise capsized on 6 March 1987, resulting in the deaths of 193 passengers and crew.

The names of those who died were read out at a service at St Mary's Church in Dover.

The passenger ferry began taking in water shortly after leaving Belgium on its way to the Kent port.
