Van de BBC:

Queen Mary 2 accident kills 12

Twelve people, including children, have died after a gangway on the new cruise ship Queen Mary 2 collapsed.
About 32 people, believed to be mostly workers' relatives, were also injured when the gangway collapsed on Saturday.

The accident happened while the unfinished ship was in dry dock in the French port of Saint Nazaire, fire services said.

The ship completed sea trials a few days ago and is due to sail to her home port of Southampton around Christmas.

"According to the latest figures there are 12 dead, about 12 badly injured and another 20 that are lightly injured," said shipyard owner Alstom Marine said Philippe Kasse said.

A spokesman at General Hospital in Saint Nazaire, Luc Ronchi, said the hospital had activated a "special plan" to deal with the influx of injured people.

Four medical teams were at the dockyard, with surgery cancelled at the hospital to deal with more admissions, he told BBC News 24.

The victims were family members of workers given permission to visit the vessel, according to a local official, Herve Malherbe, chief aide at the Loire-Atlantic prefecture.

An official visit involving dignitaries was also underway at the time of the accident.

Emergency services said the victims fell from "a great height", but it was unclear if the gangway was inside or outside the ship, BBC correspondent Hugh Schofield reported.

Flagship liner

Emergency services said the death toll could rise.

The Queen Mary 2 is the largest passenger ship ever built, 345 metres long and as tall as a 23-storey building.

It is under construction at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard, owned by French heavy engineering firm Alstom.

Construction on the world's most expensive liner began in 2002, and it will become the flagship of British shipping line Cunard.

The £550m, 2,620-passenger Cunard flagship is due to sail to Southampton, where the Queen is expected to officially name the vessel in a ceremony on 8 January, 2004.

The ship is due to begin its maiden passenger voyage to Florida four days later.

From next April, the new ship will take over Cunard's Southampton-New York run from the QE2 which will be sailing on other routes.

Shares in troubled French engineering firm Alstom fell on Monday after 15 people died at the weekend in a shipyard accident at the dock of Cunard's new flagship cruise liner the Queen Mary 2.

Alstom shares were down more than four percent in early trading, while in the western French port of Saint-Nazaire, piercing sirens ushered in a minute's silence in memory of those killed when a dockside gangway to the world's largest cruise ship collapsed.
