Urgent repairs are being carried out on the harbour wall in Weymouth after it showed signs of collapsing. In the meantime channel ferry services from the town have been halted.

Services have been diverted to Poole while engineers tackle the problem, but as Duncan Sleightholme reports, a more permanent solution might be necessary.
