Video shows ferry passengers heading for lifeboats

Video filmed by a passenger on a ferry hit by a fire which forced it back to port has emerged, showing people on board heading for lifeboats.

RAF helicopters winched two passengers and four crew off the MS King Seaways, which was sailing to Amsterdam, when it was 30 miles off Flamborough Head.

The DFDS ferry, which returned to North Shields early on Sunday, had 946 passengers and 127 crew on board.

A 26-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of arson and a 28-year-old has been arrested on suspicion of affray.
