Solent cargo ship: Preparations underway to free vessel

A car transporter ship was grounded in the Solent deliberately after it began to list, its owners have said.

The Hoegh Osaka had just left Southampton for Germany when it hit a sandbar known as Bramble Bank.

The ship is now listing at more than 50 degrees and a salvage operation is expected to take several days.

Robert Hall reports from the Solent.
