China hit by oil spill disaster

China is struggling to clean up what has being described as the country's worst oil spill, a fortnight after a fire at an oil depot caused crude to leak into the sea for several days.

An army of volunteers and fishermen has been mobilised to help clean up the pollution from the area around the port of Dalian, one of China's most important strategic oil reserves. But conditions are grim for those involved.

The scene at a small harbour where they are collecting the oil is like something out of the 19th Century.
