It has been revealed that four doctors, who were onboard the King Seaways ferry as passengers, helped to treat those who were affected by breathing in smoke.
Humber coastguard watch manager Graham Dawson said it was thanks to their efforts that so few people need to be airlifted to hospital.
He was also full of praise for the crew, whose training he said had "kicked in". He added that it was fortunate that the weather conditions were good and that if this had happened a few days earlier, during fierce storms, there could have been a very different outcome.
