11:03 am
fire on board it was still blazing twelve hours after the collision it's not known at this hour just whether that fire is under control or indeed if the vessel itself is under the control of the crew that is of major concern around eight vessels have been sent by the maritime authority in china to the site of this incident and given the proximity to south korea they are being helped by a south korean coast guard a vessel and an aircraft from south korea yet the picture is pretty dramatic drop a hundred thirty six thousand tons of who's on board the oil tanker how much concern is saying about the environment has there been an oil spill. there is talk of an oil slick and it's not known at this time just how much oil has escaped into the seas but obviously one hundred thirty six thousand tons the potential is for
