A ferry was forced to return to port and was delayed for almost 12 hours after it hit a dock gate.

P&O Ferries said the Pride of York suffered minor damage as it left the King George lock in Hull for Zeebrugge at 18:30 GMT on Monday.

Following an inspection, it eventually departed at 06:00 on Tuesday.

There were 230 passengers on board the 31,000 tonne ferry, which can hold up to 1,050 people.
