For the first time ever, satellite photography has been used to uncover shipping pollution in Cornwall.

The owners of a Singapore tanker pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates Court on Friday, after trailing a slick between Land's End and the Isles of Scilly.

The verdict comes after pictures of the Maersk Kiera were taken inside the exclusion zone.

Bosses have been ordered to pay more than £22 thousand in fines and costs.

Andrew Philips from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: "It's another tool in our armoury to allow us to detect polluters within our pollution control zone. The satellite gives us a better overview of, not only local areas, but also the whole of the UK."
