Harbour keepers 'monitoring the situation' following spill in Peel 

Small amount of diesel was found in Peel breakwater

Harbour keepers say they are 'monitoring the situation' in Peel following a pollution spill earlier this week.

The Department of Infrastructure have confirmed the problem was a small amount of diesel which appeared red in colour due to by-products of the fishing fleet in the town.

Absorbent booms and pads were deployed to contain contaminated water.

These have now been taken to the Energy from Waste Plant for disposal.
