New Ecological Disaster

A small tanker carrying 1,400 tons of fuel sank...

A small tanker carrying 1,400 tons of fuel sank and started leaking oil in Algeciras Bay off Gibraltar. Some 300 tons of diesel fuel leaked.

Two crew members were rescued when the Spabunker IV foundered in heavy seas a mile from land while it was being towed to Algeciras.

The ship was a petrol station that refuelled other vessels.
