This morning around 4:56 UTC the Cypriot container ship Jork Ranger collided with the Greek tanker Mindoro, carrying jet fuel off the Scheveningen coast in the North Sea. The collision caused a fuel spill from a five-meter wide puncture in the tanker.
Reports quoting the Dutch Coast Guard said the spill did not cause any environmental damage, as a small trail of light paraffin was evaporating soon and drifting away from the Dutch shoreline.
The leak from a five-meter wide hole was plugged by rescue teams without much delay.
Thanks to Dick Bal for passing the news along. Here is a remarkable AIS plot of the collision. The video is after the jump.
