A Fire and Rescue Marine Response team was airlifted on board a ship which caught fire in the English Channel after leaving Southampton headed for the USA at about 3.45am on Friday.
The fire took hold in the cargo area of the US car carrier ‘Honor’ while it was en route to Baltimore, in the state of Maryland, USA.
The emergency team was transported to the vessel by the UK Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Lee on Solent in Hampshire.
Their mission was to investigate the fire damage and determine whether or not it was safe for the vessel to return to the Port of Southampton.
The ship returned to land last night. Its 21 crew have been reported to be safe and well. The vessel will remain in Southampton over the weekend. Further updates will be released on Monday.
