A Chinese-owned cargo ship has run aground off the coast of southern Norway, leaking fuel, according to reports from the Norwegian coastguard.

The Full City, which was carrying 1,120 tonnes of oil, drifted into shallow waters near Langesund during stormy conditions.

Sixteen of the 23 Chinese crew members have been evacuated from the ship by helicopter.

The oil slick has reached parts of the Norwegian coast, where rescue crews are trying to siphon it from the water.
