Coast Guard resumes oil spill cleanup

The Coast Guard has resumed the oil clean up off the coast of Tjörn on the west coast after strong winds stopped clean up work Monday night.

So far, roughly 225 cubic meters of oil has been gathered outside of Tjörn and Orust in the Gothenburg archipelago.

The Coast Guard is investigating where the oil came from. One theory is that the spill is a result of a collision last Saturday between a Maltese bulk carrier and a Danish fishing boat.

Officials say it is the worst spill since 1987.
