One of the boats was carrying 121 passengers and three crew to a fireworks display when it half-sank following yesterday’s collision.

More than 40 injured people had been taken to hospitals on Hong Kong Island, some suffering from hypothermia.

The collision occurred during a busy period for passenger travel in Hong Kong, at the end of a long holiday weekend to mark the mid-autumn festival that this year coincides with China's National Day on 1st October.
