Cargo ship Hoegh Osaka, which is reputed to be carrying $100m worth of cars and JCB machines, was deliberately grounded in the Solent after it began to list.
According to Ingar Skiaker, chief executive of Hoegh Autoliners, the 51,000-tonne transporter, registered in Singapore, ran aground after developing problems once it had left Southampton for Germany at about 2020 GMT on 3 January.
At the moment the ship is listing at 45 degrees on Bramble Bank but officials have confirmed that no oil is thought to have leaked from the ship and only two of the 25 strong crew have been taken to hospital with minor injuries.
So how did it happen?
