Investigation into Cargo Ferry Accident

Published söndag 7 februari 2010 kl 11.03

Finnish authorities have the responsibility to investigate the cause of Saturday's accident in which containers of hazardous waste fell off a Finland cargo ferry into the Baltic sea somewhere between the holiday islands of Öland and Gotland.

In one of the three containers, now presumed at the bottom of the sea, there's estimated to be around eight tonnes of environmentally dangerous waste. A plane from the Swedish coastguard with radar, cameras and other equipment was used in the search.

It's not known how much of the waste has leaked into the Baltic sea. The ship will be examined when it arrives at its destination in St Petersburg.
