A Stena Line ferry carrying 156 passengers crashed into a jetty in Grenaa Harbour in Jutland last night, Jyllands-Posten reports.

The crash happened at around 00:40 when the ship was leaving the harbour. It caused a minor leak inside the engine room, which led to the captain aboard Stena Nauticus turning the ship around.

All the passengers safely left the ship in their cars and no-one was harmed, according to a police report.

Has happened before
It isn't the first time that Stena Nautica has been involved in an accident. Ten years ago, a Polish cargo vessel crashed into the ferry in Varberg. Stena Nautica took on water and 91 passengers and 23 crew members had to be evacuated onto lifeboats.

The scale of the damage is not yet known, but Stena Line reported that an investigation will be carried out today. Floating barrages have been laid out to contain the oil spill.
