Injuries after boat crash on River Thames

Hundreds of passengers had to be evacuated from a tourist boat after it collided with a cargo vessel on the Thames.

The Millennium Time, which has a capacity of 340 and is one of a fleet operated by City Cruises, collided with a barge on the river near Waterloo Bridge and the landmark Oxo Tower on Thursday.

Seven people onboard were treated for minor injuries.

Passengers Karin Aldrin and Griffin and Lindsey Marella described the incident, saying some children were crying and panicking.

City Cruises said it deeply regretted the incident and it was investigating.
