An incident on the English channel has been described by a sea rescue team as a "major collision". A large oil tanker has collided with a bulk carrier in calm seas shortly after 2am. Both vessels are damaged but still afloat. Thankfully no injuries have been reported.


Here is the radar tracker which shows the movements of both ships at the time they collided. Can you tell from this what happened and who's fault it was?
