Six men have been rescued from a tug boat which collided with an old ship it was towing off the South Devon coast last night. The ship has now sunk while all the crew are safe and well.
Divers have spent the day trying to work out how to repair the gash in the hull of the damaged tug. Experts say the risk of pollution from both vessels is very low.
