Specialist teams from Turkey are now working on the clean-up.

Yesterday morning teams from a specialist company called Seagull arrived from Turkey.

Heavy equipment for the operation is being flown in by air and there are already 100 staff on site.

Minister for Tourism and the Environment Harmanci said that reports were being prepared on the oil spill incident and that after that penalties would be imposed.

He appreciated that the public were demanding that fines be charged but that at first, guilt had to be established.
