Caption: Oil spill clean-up. Workers clearing a beach of oil pollution caused by the sinking of the oil tanker Prestige off the Atlantic coast of Spain in November 2002. The tanker was carrying 20 million gallons of fuel oil when it began to break apart in heavy seas. 4.5 million gallons of oil were spilt into the sea. These workers are clearing the oil by hand into buckets to be removed from the beach.
