Crews tackle fire on ship moored in Ramsgate harbour

Fire crews have tackled a large fire that broke out on a ship moored in Ramsgate Harbour.

About 30 firefighters fought the blaze, which broke out in the engine room of the 200-tonne Ocean Dragon at 2315 BST on Tuesday.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service said the fire started when a diesel generator overheated on the vessel.

Watch manager David Halls said: "The incident was quite challenging as crews had to work in a very confined space."
