A dramatic rescue operation's over, after a cargo ship crashed into a barge off Dover during storms.

11 crew members were winched to safety when the Saga Sky started taking on water yesterday (Sunday).

Heart's been told it's now safely anchored at Dungeness after being towed in. 

Meanwhile, flood alerts are still in place in parts of Kent this morning after more rain.

People along the Upper Medway, and those near the River Eden, are being told to prepare.
