    Quite a dent in the bow, I suppose the skipper will be in trouble over this.
    Cheers Colin.

    Oh dear.
    This is the first I have heard of this.
    Really sad news.
    I trust all will be safe and well and the ship herself is repairable.
    A lot of dented pride here I am sure.

    A total of 24 people have been injured after the paddle steamer Waverley collided with Brodick Pier in Arran.

    The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said "a number have been taken to hospital" following the incident.

    People stranded in Arran were later due to be returned to the mainland by an emergency sailing of a CalMac ferry.

    Police, paramedics, coastguards and rescue helicopters were scrambled to the scene after the alarm was raised at about 17:15 on Thursday.

    MCA said 213 passengers and 26 crew were on board the vessel when it struck the pier.

    Waverley finally sets sail after two years'Save the Waverley' appeal launchedCruises cancelled after Waverley crash

    One passenger, Graham McWilliams, told BBC Scotland'sΒ The NineΒ about the moment of collision.

    He said: "As we came into the pier, everything seemed quite normal.

    "Then there was a sudden crash, a loud bang, and the boat stopped very quickly. I saw people falling and it was quite distressing."

    Media captionWaverley crash: 'I saw one lady fly past the window'

    He added: "There was a lady that I saw who literally flew past the window."

    Mr McWilliams said that, several hours after the accident, passengers were still milling about the ferry terminal at Brodick.

    He said it was unclear if they would be able to leave the island or whether accommodation could be found for them.

    Transport Secretary Michael Matheson later tweeted to sayΒ arrangements had been made for CalMac to operate an emergency sailingΒ to take the Waverley passengers back to the mainland.

    'Far too fast'

    Rita McLeod, who was waiting to board the Waverley, said she saw people being taken away in ambulances.

    "We were actually queued up waiting to get in when it crashed," she said. "It came in bow first. It came in far too fast."

    "We saw a lot of people falling, a few people fell over. There were people taken away in ambulances.

    "We saw a lot of people, pretty badly shaken, coming off."

    The ship was due to into Brodick at about 17.00 after leaving Greenock in the morning.

    Another eyewitness saw the crash from the departure terminal as she waited to board.

    Anne Cochrane from Bishopbriggs near Glasgow, said: "It just crashed into the pier when it was coming back from the Holy Isle. We're just stuck in the departure terminal. We've had no information."

    The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has been informed of the incident.

    The WaverleyΒ set sail for the first time in two years less than two weeks ago, an event which was itself delayed due to an "unexpected technical and administration issue".

    The ship, described as the world's last seagoing paddle steamer, missed the 2019 season as it waited for urgent repairs.

    A funding appeal was launched in June 2019 and it hit its target in December after receiving a Β£1m grant from the Scottish government to help with the restoration.

    This paddle steamer, built by A & J Inglis of Glasgow and first launched in October 1946, has been involved in accidents before.
