Ferry and cargo vessel collide
A passenger ferry and a cargo vessel have collided in Belfast Lough.
It happened close to the Fairway buoy about a mile and a half from shore between Carrickfergus and Helen’s Bay around 19:45 GMT on Wednesday.
There are no reports of any injuries.
It is understood the Stena ferry has now docked at the Stena terminal. The other vessel – a cargo ship, the Union Moon – was accompanied by the coastguard as it was brought back to Belfast.
The ferry was on its way from Birkenhead, Merseyside, to Belfast when the collision happened.
