The Italian coastguard has helped dozens of migrants stranded on a rescue boat funded by British street artist Banksy.

The boat was unable to move due to an overcrowded deck after picking up 219 migrants off the Libyan coast since Thursday.

The crew claimed European officials ignored repeated calls for help – but the Italian coastguard has since taken on board 49 of the refugees.
