Authorities continue cleaning efforts for oil spill off coast of Peru
Dan Collyns

In mid-January an oil spill hit Peru’s coast just north of the capital Lima. 

Peru has called it the worst environmental disaster in recent history. It happened when an oil tanker was discharging oil into the La Pampilla refinery controlled by the Spanish energy giant Repsol.

The impact of the spill has devastated swathes of Peru’s Pacific coastline.
