Thirty people were rescued from a tall ship after it ran aground off the south coast of Ireland.

The Astrid hit rocks near the Sovereign Islands, on Wednesday as it attempted to navigate the entrance to the harbour near Kinsale, County Cork.

The incident was filmed by the Irish Coast Guard.

Sean O'Farrell from Courtmacsherry Lifeboat said it was "a miracle" that everyone onboard escaped unharmed.
