A cargo ship has "almost certainly" sunk after colliding with a container ship in the North Sea, with a rescue operation underway, the Dutch coastguard said.
The Baltic Ace, a car carrier sailing under a Bahamas flag, and the Corvus J, a container ship from Cyprus, collided about 30 miles from the Dutch port of Rotterdam.
Coastguard spokesman Peter Verburg said the rescue of 24 crew from the Baltic Ace was underway after several people were found on four life rafts. He added that it was unclear if anyone was missing.
The Baltic Ace was en route from Zeebrugge, in Belgium, to Kotka in Finland, while the Corvus J was going from Grangemouth in Scotland to Antwerp, Belgium, according to Dutch media.
