Ship blaze in the Channel.
The blaze broke out yesterday on the Calypso as it sailed near Beachy Head, sparking a full-scale emergency response from the Coastguard, fire and rescue services.
Firefighters flew out to the ship, about 20 miles from the coast, and put out the blaze. There were no casualties and it was not necessary to evacuate the vessel.
The Cyprus-registered ship, which was carrying 246 crew and 462 passengers - most of them Dutch - was brought into dock at Southampton for repairs.
