A massive oil rig grounded off Lewis is leaking fuel.

:00:09.:00:13.

The Transocean Winner has more than 300,000 litres of diesel

:00:14.:00:15.

on board and two of its fuel tanks appear to have been breached.

:00:16.:00:19.

It broke free from a towing line attached to a tug on Monday,

:00:20.:00:22.

and efforts to refloat it are being hampered by bad weather.

:00:23.:00:24.

Dalmore beach on the West Coast of the race is usually inhabited with

:00:25.:00:37.

holiday-makers and surfers at this time of year. Instead, a 17,000

:00:38.:00:44.

tonne of an oil rig remains an incongruous sight. Whether brought

:00:45.:00:48.

fresh challenges and concern today, following an inspection it is feared

:00:49.:00:53.

:01:11.:01:15.

being on another planet. Unbelievable. How this huge

:01:42.:01:47.

structure could be on our doorstep. As salvage teams arrive with

:01:48.:01:52.

equipment which may be used to pump out some of the diesel oil on board,

the road to the beach remains closed off to allow access for emergency

:01:57.:02:00.

vehicles, and to keep the public away from the potentially dangerous

:02:01.:02:06.

:02:07.:02:11.

professionals, they know what they are doing, and I'm not sure when it

:02:12.:02:17.

will be refloated, but the sooner the better. As the weather worsens,
