The car carrier Hoegh Osaka was intentionally grounded on the Bramble Bank after developing a severe list shortly after its departure from the Port of Southampton in January 2015.

A total of 25 people were evacuated from the vessel, including two crewmembers with minor injuries.

In this video, John Attenborough, Port Chaplain Southampton for The Mission to Seafarers, tells how he helped the crew of the grounded car carrier in the hours, days and weeks that followed the grounding and their rescue.
