Man : Good evening, I’m Jed West and this is the six o’clock news.
Last night there was an accident in the South China sea, near the Philippines. An oil tanker hit a fishing boat. The collision happened in very stormy weather at half past two in the morning. The fishing boat sank, but the crew got into a life raft. The tanker didn't see the men in the life raft and didn't stop. There was a big hole in the bow of the oil tanker and thousands of tons of oil came out, and leaked into the sea. The fishermen sent up rockets and flares. A rescue boat saw them and rescued the fishermen. They gave them blankets and hot drinks but they were still very cold and shocked. 
This morning, in daylight, a search helicopter saw all the oil on the sea. Special boats are spraying chemicals on the oil but the beaches are already polluted. A lot of fish and seabirds are caught in the oil. It is a very bad day indeed for the fishing and tourism industries.
