Work ongoing to stop second North Sea Oil leak

Shell has said that it has discovered a second leak from its Gannet Alpha Oil platform in the North Sea.

More than 200 tonnes of oil have escaped since the first leak was discovered six days ago.

The company said it had managed to slow the release of oil to around two barrels a day but stemming the second leak is proving to be a challenge.
