The Maritime and Coastguard Agency has told ITV Meridian that most of the crew on board a cargo vessel called the Hoegh Osaka that ran aground in the Solent have now been safely rescued.
A statement from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: "The coastguard helicopter from Lee on Solent is currently airlifting 25 crew from a car carrier which has grounded on the Bramble Bank, East Cowes, Isle of Wight.
"Southampton VTS is sending tugs to the scene to assist with the vessel which is listing to one side."
A rescue operation is under way after a cargo ship ran aground in the Solent off the Isle of Wight.
The RNLI said the ship’s crew are being rescued from the water and from on board the stricken vessel, which is at a list of 45 degrees.
Four RNLI lifeboats are in attendance alongside the Solent coastguard helicopter which is airlifting 25 crew members including one person who suffered injuries when the ship ran aground.
