Abandoned ferry sinks in Algeciras

A ferry abandoned in the port of Algeciras took on water in heavy winds last night and began sinking.
No one was injured and emergency services in the Spanish city sealed the vessel off with a boom, insisting there was no risk of pollution.
The vessel, Panagia Parou, was abandoned several years ago and is docked in a small harbour basin deep inside the port.
