Listing Foyle cruise vessel saved

A vessel which runs cruises on the River Foyle has been saved after it began taking on water.

The Fire and Rescue Service spent two hours pumping water from the Toucan One's engine room on Sunday.

A spokesperson said that when crews arrived the boat was listing, but was not in danger of sinking.

The damage is believed to have been caused by ice on the river.
