Italy ferry passenger 'Floor paint started bubbling'

Nick Channing-Williams, a passenger on the Norman Atlantic ferry which caught fire off Corfu, has been talking about the moment he realised he was in trouble.

He said panic set in when the floor caught fire and the paint started bubbling up. He said people's feet were so hot they were desperate to get on board the lifeboats.

The death toll in the incident has risen to seven.

One man was killed when trying to escape the ship, and a further six bodies have since been found.
