Passengers have disembarked in the southern US state of Alabama from a disabled cruise ship which was left drifting for days in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tugboats pulled the Carnival Triumph, carrying more than 4,000 passengers, into port in Mobile a drama that was played out live on US cable news stations on Thursday.

At about 10:15pm Central time, the first passengers started to walk down an enclosed gangway to a terminal.
