Cargo ship: almost all oil removed

Almost all of the oil has removed from the striken cargo ship off the north Wales coast near Colwyn Bay.

The coastguard says barrels of oil and tins of paint onboard are also now being removed. A decision will be made later today about the next stage of the salvage operation.
