In pictures: Channel sinking
Attempts to salvage a cargo ship which sank in the English Channel while carrying 3,000 luxury cars were due to resume on Sunday.

The Norwegian-registered Tricolor was in collision with the container ship Kariba in thick fog 30 miles east of Ramsgate, Kent. None of the crew was injured.
