It was a spot on the shore too tight to park in, but nothing a high speed approach couldn't fix.

Footage has emerged of a Turkish ferry speeding to the shore on its final journey, before scraping to a standstill between two other boats readied for the gas axe.

The ferry, the Ostend Spirit, was retired by its owners and came to rest for the last time at the ship-breaking yard in Aliaga, Turkey, where it was later taken apart.

The video was filmed in November 2013, but has only now got worldwide attention.
