Women are "an unused resource" in the shipping industry, a resource which should be tapped if the industry is to expand.

That's according to Lee Adamson, from the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The organization says that only 2 per cent of the world's seafarers are currently women.

It's an issue which is being focused on during World Maritime Day, celebrated annually on 24 September.

Siobhán Garside has been speaking to Mr Adamson.
