A cargo ship reportedly carrying nearly 900 people has docked in the Italian port of Gallipoli after the crew apparently abandoned ship off the coast of Greece.

The Blue Sky M was at one point heading directly towards the Italian coast on autopilot.

The Italian authorities took control of the ship at sea and brought it safely to shore.

It's thought the passengers were mostly Syrians escaping from their country.
