Caption

Oil pollution clean-up. Team of workers cleaning up a beach polluted by an oil slick. At lower centre a worker is using a scoop to push oil towards a suction nozzle held by the man in yellow overalls at bottom centre. The nozzle is connected to a tank at top centre. To the left of the tank is a boom designed to stop the floating oil from reaching the shoreline. 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.
