A British woman has believed to have fallen overboard from a P&O Cruise ship in the Mediterranean.
A search operation is underway for the as-yet unnamed passenger, who was reported missing on the Aurora ship as it sailed from the Portuguese city Oporto to Barcelona yesterday, the company said.
Despite an immediate search of the area by the ship's crew, the woman was not found.
"We can confirm a missing female presumed overboard from Aurora sailing from Oporto to Barcelona. The ship turned round to search for her and all relevant authorities have been advised," a P&O Cruises statement said.
The Aurora left Southampton for a 14-night western Mediterranean cruise on Wednesday. The company said that its care team is providing support and assistance to the family.
