FUEL is leaking from a cargo ship that ran aground in Llandulas– leading to fears it could be a serious pollution risk.
Strong winds and rough seas hampered efforts to secure the ship, which is carrying around 40,000 litres of fuel.
Rescuers were alerted to the incident when a distress call was received by Coastguards at 8.15pm on Tuesday. Two lifeboats and two helicopters were involved in the dramatic rescue of the seven Polish crew members.
So watch out for hold ups on the A55 as the salvage effort gets underway.
