Up to 300 tonnes of oil has been spilled into the sea more than 50 miles off the West Cork coast of the Irish Republic, it has emerged.

Two Russian war ships are believed to have been refuelling when the slick occurred, said the Department of Transport.

But a spokeswoman denied early reports of a collision or that the vessels were nuclear.
