Worcestershire woman describes moment freak wave hit ship

A woman from Worcestershire was onboard the cruise ship which was hit by a freak wave in the English Channel on Friday.

Heather Gratland, from Worcestershire, was in the 6th floor restaurant when the water entered the ship.

All I remember was one minute I was sitting there and the next my head was under water.

The lights went out momentarily. Immediately they were ushering us out.

I was trying to find my shoes and my husband lost his glasses.

We were very lucky, the ones sitting low, because we were less injured than the people higher up.
