A cargo ship, stranded in the Solent for three weeks, had been incorrectly loaded and was unstable when it left port.
Those are the findings of a detailed report by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch into why the Hoegh Osaka listed and flooded last year, after running aground on its way from Southampton to Germany.
It was one of the most remarkable sights ever seen in the waters of the Solent - for 19 days a massive cargo ship, stranded helpless on a sandbank.
Thousands headed to the coast to see the stricken vessel. Richard Jones reports on events just over a year ago.
