Oil Slick Warning

An oil slick has been spotted in Whitsand Bay.

Officials think Saturday's storms could have released it from a wreck.

They reckon it is small enough to break up on its own.

An environmental group is urging us to look out for birds in trouble - and to keep dogs on a lead.

Claire Wallerstein from Rame Peninsula Beach Care said: "I haven't heard anything yet about any dead birds or animals, so hopefully it will disperse, though we did pick up an oiled guillemot in Kingsand last week which sadly later died. I hope it wasn't a front runner.  

"Please do keep your eyes open for dead or stricken birds and other animals."

If you do see something then call the RSPCA on freephone 0300 1234 999.

Live stranded seals, dolphins etc. (do not approach, try to keep members of the public and dogs away) call the BDMLR on 01825 765546.

For all animals, dead or alive, please also report to Cornwall Wildlife Trust on 0345 201 2626.
