    Background: The British tanker "Ardtaraig" owned by P & O's Trident Tankers, ran aground early this morning (Sunday) off Rotterdam Harbour on the Hook of Holland. In view of the many recent accidents involving oil tankers in the English Channel, operations were under way rapidly to rescue the 119,000-ton ship which was fully laden with crude oil. Coverage was filmed by VISNEWS Cameraman Jac de Gier from one of the rescue launches.
