A dangerous cargo has been successfully removed from the ship that ran aground near Sweden. This ship is now revealed to have been carrying containers of high explosives, reports news agency TT.

Two containers filled with dynamite were unloaded on Sunday from the Godafoss, aground near the Olsofjord just over the Norwegian border from Sweden's west coast.

The Swedish coastguard is helping with the clear-up, contributing ships, including one that can remove oil from the water.

News is also coming in of the effect of the leaking cargo oil on wildlife - and of 1,600 birds that have been inspected (mostly eider sea-ducks), only 50 of them were affected by oil, eight of them seriously - and seven of those birds have died.
