Ships stuck in Baltic Sea ice


A number of ships, including ferries with more than 1,000 passengers on board, have become stuck in ice in the Baltic Sea, officials say.

The vessels are grounded in the waters between Stockholm and the Aland Islands.

Peter Lindquist from the Swedish Maritime Administration spoke to BBC about the operation to free the vessels.
