This shipwreck broke into 3 on Friday evening during a storm, The Seli 1 a Turkish bulk carrier ran aground in September 2009. We were assured all the oil had been pumped out but surprise surprise the beach was black on Saturday morning, crews have been working flat out to clear the oil and have done a wonderful job so far.
