Titanic route ship Balmoral in course change

The ship following the course of The Titanic has had to turn back towards Ireland because of a medical emergency.

The MS Balmoral left Cobh in County Cork on Monday evening on its way to the spot where The Titanic sank.

The vessel has had to change course to enable a helicopter leaving from Kerry airport to reach the ship.

Once the man, who is in his 50s, has been taken off the ship, it will resume its voyage.

A service is to be held on board the Balmoral on Sunday to mark the sinking.
