There are fears for grey seals and seabird populations on the Farne Islands after an 80-foot cargo ship ran aground in the early hours of this morning.
Andrew Douglas, who runs boat trips around the Farnes, said the ship "doesn't appear to be holed" but that we was concerned about the effects on local wildlife.
"It is worrying because all the birds are starting to return to the islands for the summer.
"We have 20,000 guillemots on the Farnes right now."
The islands are also home to puffins, around 6,000 grey seals and more than 20 bird species breed there.
