Ferry ROYAL IRIS OF THE MERSEY with 69 passengers and 5 crew ran aground at around 1330 UTC July 10, while on a day Manchester Canal Cruise from Seacombe, Wirral, along the Manchester Ship canal to Salford Quays. Vessel’s hull was breached with ensuing water ingress. All passengers were helped on to a dredger – which was also used to pump water out of the ferry as it began to capsize, said The Daily Star. No injures reported, passengers weren’t actually, in real danger, said Mersey Travel. Water ingress was put under control, ferry was taken to Eastham lock system and docked at Eastham.
