The wrecked Russian fishing boat is no longer leaking a single drop of oil, according to Spanish minister of development Ana Pastor.
The first of several leaks on the wreck of the Oleg Naydenov has now been sealed with a steel cofferdam, according to the Spanish authorities. Efforts to seal the remaining fuel leaks are ongoing.
Gran Canaria's beaches are currently clear of fuel oil after a large volunteer-led clear up over the past two days. There is currently one confirmed oil slick 5 kilometres from the coast but no reports of fresh oil close to the island.
New York-listed Kosmos Energy has announced that the oil deposits it discovered in Morrocan waters north of the Canary Islands are commercially unviable and that it is sealing the well.
If you're thinking of buying a Gran Canaria property and don't speak fluent Spanish, get professional help.
