Caption: Oil pollution clean-up. Team of workers cleaning up a beach polluted by an oil slick. At centre left workers deploy a floating boom designed to stop oil slicks from reaching the shoreline. At right are two tractors pulling tanks in which the pollutant has been collected. This slick originated in a spill of about 70,000 tonnes of light crude oil from the oil tanker Sea Empress off the coast of Milford Haven, Wales, in February 1996. Photographed in West Angle Bay, Wales.
