66 passengers and crew are being evacuated from an Italian car ferry that caught fire near a Greek island this morning.

The evacuation is being complicated by strong winds and lack of places in lifeboats.

Fire broke out on an Italian Norman Atlantic car ferry travelling from western Greece to eastern Italy.

The ferry has 411 passengers and 55 crew on board, as well as 222 vehicles.
