Llanddulas ship aground: Efforts to limit eco damage

Help

Efforts are being made to minimise the impact of leaked fuel from a cargo ship which ran aground in north Wales.

Environment Agency Wales (EAW) said the MV Carrier shed "a small quantity" of gas oil after it hit a rock in rough seas at Llanddulas, Colwyn Bay.

EAW said arrangements were being made to remove the rest of the fuel onboard and that the environmental impact of the incident was minimal so far.

Seven crew members were rescued from the vessel on Tuesday night.

BBC Wales environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd reports.
