VIDEOGRAB OF FUEL OIL LEAKING FORM SUNKEN TANKER PRESTIGE OFF SPANISH
COAST.
Fuel oil is seen leaking from a portion of the hull of the tanker
Prestige, seen in this underwater video provided by the Spanish
Coastguard on December 5, 2002, which shows the tanker lying on the
ocean bed 3.5 km (two miles) below the surface, about 130 nautical
miles (240 km) off the coast of Galicia in northwestern Spain. Portugal
and France went on high alert on Wednesday as oil slicks from the
sunken tanker encroached on their coasts and a tide of sludge lapped up
on the shores of a second Spanish nature reserve. The spill has already
coated 183 beaches in Spain with toxic heavy fuel oil despite the best
efforts of under-equipped and overwhelmed volunteers who are helping
the official clean-up. REUTERS/POOL/SALVAMENTO MARITIMO
