tHIS ferry has made a dramatic final docking after crashing into land at speed in Turkey.
Footage shows the Ostend Spirit heading to the shore, before scraping to a standstill between two boats.
The vessel had been retired by its owners, and was coming to rest for the last time at the ship-breaking yard in Aliaga, Turkey, where it will later be taken apart.
The ship, formerly known as The Pride of Calais, served as a channel ferry for P&O Ferries, travelling between Dover and Calais for 22 years until 2012.
I think this is a cool way to retire a ship, Talk about going out with a BANG!
