Seabird Deaths Investigation Closed
4:19pm 21st August 2013
We will never know why around two thousand birds died off the Cornish and Devon coast.
Investigators say they cannot trace the ship that flooded the southwest's seas with pollution.
Teams say they have narrowed it to sixteen but the trail has gone cold.
Mark was one of those who helped rescue birds covered in PIB:
"The problem is this stuff sticks to their feathers. Then they can't swim, they can't feed, they can't prune themselves to keep themselves warm and then what happens is they end up starving to death and they end up freezing to death."
Jess from the Lizard saw the effects of the gluey substance: "I was staying at my parents house, they live right on the beach in Cawsand and I was waking up in my pyjamas walking down to the beach and taking birds off the beach covered in PIB. It was stopping them from flying, it was stopping them from floating and they were really starving becuase they couldn't carry ot their normal foraging behaviour."
