23 teenagers and 7 adult crew members have been rescued after a former Weymouth Tall Ship sunk off the Irish Coast.

The Astrid which used to be moored in Weymouth takes groups of aspiring young sailors on voyages around the world.

She lost power yesterday morning and the crew were unable to prevent her from hitting the rocks.

All people on board were safely rescued by the coastguard.
