Edinburgh, UK, Mar 22 (EFE).- At least 23 people were injured on Wednesday after a deep-sea vessel toppled over onto its side at a shipyard in Edinburgh.

NHS Lothian said 23 people needed hospital treatment following the “major incident” at the Imperial Dock in the district of Leith, north of the Scottish capital.
