A leak from a pipeline at an onshore oil field into the water at Poole Harbour in Dorset is "unacceptable", its council leader has said.

About 200 barrels of reservoir fluid, including oil, leaked from a pipeline run by Perenco, on Sunday.

Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Council leader Philip Broadhead said: "Serious questions need to be answered."

Jim Stewart, of Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC), said a team of 60, aided by a helicopter and drones, were currently involved with the response.

"Poole Harbour is one of the largest natural harbours in the world - it's a huge area so we have four separate teams combing the harbour to understand the extent of the spill at this stage and where it has come ashore," he said.
