Default Jet fuel tanker collides with container ship North sea.

A Greek tanker is leaking paraffin after colliding with a Cypriot container ship in the North Sea. Coast guards have told Sky News the accident, which occurred near Scheveningen, approximately 30km off the Dutch coast, has caused little environmental damage.
Dutch news agency ANP has reported there was a hole in the hull of the tanker.
There were no injuries among crew on either vessel.

This should be in News.

The tanker is riding pretty high in the water, so I presume it is not loaded.
