"The damage was such that the frigate was no longer stable and was not able to float sufficiently", a Norwegian Navy officer, Sigurd Smith, told reporters. According to Norway media reports, frigate sustained heavy damages, water ingress, probably in danger of sinking, all 137 crew evacuated, 7 were slightly injured. Eight navy personnel are said to be injured, including two flown to regional hospital, Haukland, but the tanker Sola's 23 crew were all evacuated safely.

Norway's emergency services have confirmed the Helge Instad is sinking as there is "no control over the leak".

The shipping site Sysla reported that the tanker had been loaded with crude oil and was on its way to the UK.

It was being towed out of the harbour when it somehow managed to ram the frigate.

According to the Norwegian Coastal Administration, a 10-cubic metre helicopter fuel tank on the frigate was ruptured. Both Norway's Accident Investigation Board and Malta's Marine Safety Investigation Unit will investigate the collision, as the tanker was registered in Malta.
