Crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship reaches US coast
A crippled cruise ship with 3,200 people aboard has reached land, four days after an engine fire knocked out the vessel's power.
The Carnival Triumph arrived in Mobile, Alabama at around 21:15 (03:15 GMT).
Disembarking the passengers took more than four hours and many still face a long bus journey home or to the port of departure, Galveston.
Passengers had reported sewage on the floors, poor sanitation and access to toilets, and lengthy queues for food. Footage filmed by passengers Jay Collier and Ann Barlow shows the conditions people on the ship had to cope with.
Steve Kingstone reports.
