Grounded ship hits rail services

A stretch of railway line was closed after a ship ran aground in rough seas in Northern Ireland.

The vessel was on its way to Turkey when it hit a jetty at Culmore outside Londonderry, close to the waters edge at Lough Foyle.

It was later taken away for repairs.

Rail services between Derry and Coleraine were disrupted for a time before checks were carried out and the track reopened.
