SEARCH ON FOR OIL SLICK CULPRIT

Some 20 boats are under investigation as being the possible source of the oil slick which threatened the coast of Valencia last week. By the end of the week, the spill was practically under control but the red flag was kept flying on the Cabanyal and Malvarrosa beaches as a precautionary measure. Some 3,500 kilos of fuel were spilled by the as yet unknown vessel and about 40 cleaning units were on hand to deal with any tar that slipped through the barriers placed round the slick.
