Passengers on board a ferry which hit rocks off Herm last year have received an apology from the vessel's owners.
The ferry hit rocks during a night trip last August
The Trident Six went aground in thick fog with 179 people on board when coming back to Guernsey late at night.
The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) said the collision last August was caused by a combination of human error and equipment.
Peter Wilcox, the Manager of the Trident Charter Company, says at the time of the accident the ship and its crew did comply with safety regulations.
He offered his sincere regrets to all the passengers who were caught up in the incident but said it was the first accident in the company's 35 year history.
And he assured islanders his firm would adopt the further safety precautions recommended by the MAIB.
"Trident wishes to reassure those members of the travelling public that we will continue to provide our services with the benefits of the modification and improvements suggested by the MAIB," he said.
