Repairs to a cruise ship are being made in Southampton after a crack appeared in its top deck while it was at sea.

Passengers described the crack on board P&O's Ventura cruise ship as three inches (60mm) wide, stretching the entire width of the aluminium deck.

The company said an inspector from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency is on board and the crack raised no structural strength or safety concerns.

The ship is expected to resume sailing later on a short cruise to Belgium.
