Oil spill off coast of GREECE ‘environmental disaster’
The Greek Island of Salamina is suffering from an “ecological disaster” after a tanker carrying more than 2,000 tons of crude oil sunk off the coast.Drone footage captured the scale of pollution on the island of Salamis after a 45-year-old Agia Zoni II took on water near Athens over the weekend.
It subsequently sank, leaving a spill of oil spreading across almost a mile. It is thought thousands of marine animals, both over and underwater could be affected.
The images taken by Up Drones show Selinia bay turning black. Large amounts of oil can also be seen washed ashore.
