SS Torrey Canyon Disaster, 1967. Clean up operation by the British Army after the oil tanker ran aground between Land's End and the Scilly Isles causing the biggest oil spill in UK history, 100 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the sea. The environmental disaster was made far worse by the heavy use of detergent to disperse the oil slick which was later determined to have killed off far more marine life than the oil spill itself  © Romano Cagnoni/reportdigital.co.uk
