Pollution watch as ship beaches

BBC reports:

Anti-pollution teams are on stand by after a massive ship carrying potentially dangerous chemicals beached one mile off the Devon coast.

The MSC Napoli, which was holed in the English Channel on Thursday, is carrying 2,394 containers.

About 150 contained "hazardous" substances including industrial and agricultural chemicals, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said.

The ship has beached near Branscombe following serious structural failure.

Its 26-man crew was rescued by helicopter on Thursday.
