Oil tanker col­lides with cargo ship

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

An oil tanker and a large cargo ship col­lided on Satur­day in the Dover Strait be­tween Bri­tain and France but the ac­ci­dent caused no ca­su­al­ties or pol­lu­tion and both ves­sels were able to set off again, French au­thor­i­ties said. The local Mar­itime Pre­fec­ture said the col­li­sion took place overnight 32 kilo­me­ters off the north­ern French port of Dunkirk, in the Bri­tish zone of the strait be­tween the English Chan­nel and the North Sea, one of the world’s busiest sea routes. It said none of the tanker’s 27 crew mem­bers or the 22 on the freighter was in­jured.
