Worst oil spill in a decade in the North Sea

In the worst oil spill in a decade for the region, the British government reports as of August 16, 2011 that an estimated 1,300 barrels of oil had leaked from a platform in the North Sea before being brought under control, with officials stating that the oil’s natural dispersion would hopefully avoid adverse effects on wildlife.
