Fertiliser ship reaches Bilbao

The Dutch ship Ostedijk, carrying 6,000 tonnes of artificial fertiliser, has arrived in Bilbao two days after the Spanish authorities gave it leave to travel. The ship ran into problems two weeks ago when its cargo began to ferment and release dangerous gases. An investigation will now begin into why the chemical reaction took place.
