AMSTERDAM - Six people had to be rescued from Rotterdam harbour on Thursday after the water taxi they were travelling in collided with a larger sightseeing boat and sank, local authorities said.

None of the six were injured but all were taken to hospital as a precaution, the emergency services said, adding that all on board, who included one child, were accounted for.

The collision, whose circumstances were not immediately clear, happened close to the city's Erasmus Bridge and led to water traffic on the Nieuwe Maas river near the bridge being suspended for several hours.
