WWF call for investigation into leaks at oil rig

WWF Scotland has called for an investigation into an oil rig in the North Sea, after workers were evacuated for the second time this year, following the discovery of a leak.

In a statement the organisation said that "serious questions must be asked about the integrity of this ageing rig".

In the interests of the environment and all oil workers it would be wise for the relevant authorities to take a much closer look at this platform, and those of a similar age dotted throughout the North Sea.
