Four people who were injured when a ferry deck collapsed have been released from hospital.

The incident on the Wightlink Ferry happened at around 10:30 last night as passengers disembarked at the Fishbourne terminal on the island.

The mezzanine deck, which had nine cars on it, collapsed on to the deck beneath it as it was being lowered. Vehicles on the lower deck had already left the ferry.
