Southend Oil Spill

21 September 2010: Oil could still be seen washing ashore following the previous day’s oil spill from what was reported as an aging sea vessel. About 500 litres of oil leaked from the old ship.

Today, at 8am, local council workers began the clean-up operation.

  1. >i walked along southend beach today to see for my self how much of a threat this oil is,and it is pretty nasty stuff,very sticky,black,and foul smelling.There was globs of it every 10ft or more,and after arriving home i discovered it had stuck to the bottom of my shoe and there was evidence of the stuff in my car.until it is removed, i recommend people walking on the beach to take care not to step in any of it.
