Cargo Ferry Drops Dangerous Waste

Published söndag 7 februari 2010 kl 11.03

The Swedish coastguard continued its search on Sunday morning for containers of hazardous waste which fell off a Finland cargo ferry into the sea somewhere between the holiday islands of Öland and Gotland.

In one of the three containers there's estimated to be around eight tonnes of environmentally dangerous waste.

It's not known how much of the waste has leaked into the Baltic sea.

The incident happened on Saturday morning as the Finnish cargo ferry travelled from Rotterdam to St Petersburg.
