A rescue effort is underway off the Cork coast for a ship with 13 people on board that's broken down and drifting off the south west coast.

The 108 metre long Abuk Lion was on its way to Russia when the engines failed.

The Valentia coast guard says another boat is on standby to tow the ship to safety, but bad weather is hampering the rescue.

The coast guard says the Abuk Lion is not in immediate danger, and it's hoped the rescue will take place later today.
