Diesel pollution feared

More than 50 boats have been sunk by Hurricane Omar as it passed through the island of St Croix in the US Virgin Islands.

Now there are fears that leaking fuel tanks will cause diesel pollution in the area and so access has been shut down to Schooner Bay Channel in Christianstead Harbour.

The wrecked vessels include houseboats, catamarans, yachts and sailing boats torn from moorings and marinas.
