Twelve people have been rescued from an empty cargo ship after it split in half on a breakwater off the south-western coast of France.

The Luno collided into the sea wall at Anglet, after its engine failed.

All of the crew members were winched to safety by a helicopter, with one person suffering a nose injury.
