The Gibraltar Port Authority continues to work to mitigate as far as possible the impact of oil in BGTW.

The boom surrounding the OS 35 is now in place.

The Gibraltar Port Authority, together with its partner agencies including the Department of the Environment and in close cooperation with its counterparts in Spain, continues to focus on cleanup operations both from land and on the sea. The Chief Minister has been in contact with the Mayor of La Linea this afternoon.

The Port Authority will resume some limited port operations overnight between 2100 – 0600hrs (non bunkering at anchorage, only vessels alongside and crewchanges / deliveries) and will continue to monitor and reassess the situation as it evolves.
