Oil spill in Ramsey Harbour

Source of pollution not yet determined

A cleanup operation has been launched following an oil spill in Ramsey.

Officers from the coastguard were called to the town's harbour around teatime last night.

It was reported oil could be seen along 'the whole length of the harbour'.

Crews placed absorbent pollution booms, which it's hoped will soak up some of the material, over the next few days.

The source of the spill has not been determined.
