Overnight the situation onboard the OS 35 vessel has remained stable. Continuous pumping out of fuel from Tank 1 Centre Starboard has taken place until the early hours of the morning.
Although the vessel is unable to operate its own machinery, the situation in the engine room has remained stable overnight.
Continuous monitoring has been in place throughout the night including drone and land based thermal imagining.
Following an assessment by the Ministry of Environment of Gibraltar’s beaches, a Red Flag has been recommended only at Little Bay for now.
HMGoG will continue to inform the public on any updates throughout the course of the morning and the Gibraltar Contingency Council will convene virtually at 12pm.
