2350 hrs, last night - Wednesday, 28 February 2018, in the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, during a storm caused by Storm Emma, the massive, laid up and unmanned oil drilling platform 'West Taurus' broke all moorings, drifted across the harbour and collided with the German owned conatiner vessel 'Spica' IMO 9083043, causing damage below the waterline and flooding of one or more container holds.

No injuries reported as yet.

Remarkable dockside footage:
