  Oil pollution spreads

    Monday 3 August 2009


Image The oil leaking from the stranded Chinese tanker "Full City", which ran aground near Langesund on Friday morning, is spreading down the coast towards the beaches of Aust-Agder and Risoer.

Meanwhile, salvage crews are working around the clock, trying to contain and skim the oil around the tanker at Langesund.

Equipment is in place, and on Sunday work will begin to empty the heavy oil which still remains in the wreck.

Crews are also out, attempting to save some of the sea birds which have been covered by oil from the spill. Many birds considered to be beyond help have been shot by local game wardens.
