Oil slick is heading to British coast after North Sea pipeline leak 14 Aug 2011 An oil slick measuring 50 square miles is heading for the British coastline after a North Sea pipeline started leaking.

Shell admitted on Friday night that  crude oil had been leaking into the sea from beneath its Gannet Alpha rig, 112  miles east of Aberdeen, since at least Wednesday.
