About 1,300 people are being evacuated from a cruise ship off the western coast of Norway, authorities have said.
Police in the county of More og Romsdal say the ship has suffered engine problems, and all those aboard are being taken to shore.
Norway's sea rescue agency said the MV Viking Sky sent out a distress signal amid high waves and strong winds.
Five helicopters and several ships are taking part in the evacuation, the agency said.
However, a freighter - Hagland Captain - also lost engine power and two helicopters were diverted to rescue its crew. There are photos of the freighter on social media .
