The problem is this is happening quite close to shore and if this boat sinks there could be a big pollution problem.
There is a lot of diesel on the boat, and there's a good chance the diesel would leak if it sinks.
It would contaminate the local beaches - all this part of the coast is a holiday coastline.
It is also a fishing area and would impact on the local birds and wildlife."
