'No pollution risk' from stricken cargo ship

Environment Agency Wales says they don't believe the cargo ship that ran aground on rocks near to Llanddulas poses a major pollution threat. Officers from the agency are patrolling beaches in the area looking for signs of pollution following the incident on Tuesday evening.

Water samples have been taken at various points around the ship to investigate the light sheen visible around the vessel.

Work to offload the remaining fuel aboard the boat is due to begin on Thursday afternoon.
